Galápagos - A Natural History

The Galápagos Islands are a very special group of islands situated about 1000 km west of the coast of Ecuador. These islands are famous for their natural beauty and spectacular wildlife. In 1985 I published a guidebook to the islands with the University of Calgary Press. A second edition was published in 1993. A Spanish edition of the book has been produced and came out in 1996.
