A Lifetime in Galapagos
Tui de Roy
A beautifully illustrated and personal chronicle of life on these spectacular islands.
Featuring hundreds of breathtaking photographs, this stunning book guides you into misty cloud forests to glimpse flycatchers and orchids, up volcanic cones to commune with giant tortoises, and into the sea to swim among hammerhead sharks, Galapagos penguins and marine iguanas.
Tui De Roy’s lens provides up-close encounters with many of the islands’ special inhabitants, including its extraordinary birdlife, and paints unforgettable portraits of her childhood in Galapagos, the islands at night under the stars of the Milky Way, sea lions at play and on the hunt, and much more.
Blending striking images with vivid prose, A Lifetime in Galapagos also discusses the threats that global warming and other environmental challenges pose to the archipelago’s unique wildlife and fragile habitats.
