The Galapagos Islands have captured the imagination of the world. This book captures the ethereal -- even haunting -- quality of these islands, in words and in pictures. World-renowned wildlife photographer Tui De Roy was raised in the Galapagos from the age of two. This long-awaited sequel to her first book, Galapagos, Island Lost in Time, is the culmination of a life's work: thirty-five years of exploring and recording the secrets of the Galapagos.
