A great generalized book about the Galapagos. It is THE book to take with you while traveling the islands.

Took this book with me to the Galapagos (Summer 2019) and used it to tick off species I spotted. Carried it everywhere. I gave it five stars as it made the Islands that much more fun to visit. A comprehensive wildlife guidebook that covered 99% of what I spotted. If you go, take a copy of this book!
