In 1996 writer-adventurer Mark Newman traveled to the Galapagos Islands. He stayed in the famed archipelago for longer than Charles Darwin had and visited more than twice as many of the islands. Here is his fascinating account of that journey, undertaken partly by Brigantine Schooner, partly by kayak, and partly on foot. There are animal encounters galore, a hike around the second largest caldera in the world, and plenty of entertaining anecdotes about the lesser known aspects of Darwin's 1835 visit. Globetrotters, wildlife enthusiasts, armchair explorers, and Darwin history buffs will all find this book irresistible.
