Editorial Reviews

International Travel News
"If you're even thinking of a trip, get a copy.... It's the best guide we've seen."
Library Journal - Library Journal
Intrepid travelers interested in natural history who can afford to spend a pretty penny for the privilege of roughing it may consider vacationing in the Galapagos Islands, a province of Ecuador where tourism is tightly controlled in order to protect the fragile environment. Boyce reviews the islands' history, explains its ecology and the evolution of its wildlife, and tells where to go and what to see and photograph. He describes various available tour options in detail, but this section is the most likely to become outdated, as visitor sites, tour operators, airline routes, etc., change. An annotated bibliography plus two indexes (one general, a second for tours) help the traveler prepare. For comprehensive public library travel collections. --Laurie Tynan, Montgomery Cty.-Norristown P.L., Pa.
