Beebe visited the Galapagos long before they became a 'must see' holy site for those of us interested in geology and evolutionary biology; at that time a visit to the Galapagos was a major expedition requiring lots of money, a steam yacht, and lots of planning--definitely not a jaunt for a casual tourist.Read more ›
Nope. No splendid illustrations. Forget about it.
There's, according to the book:
- 39 drawings
- 75 photos
But, according to me, there's:
- 16 clipped colored drawings on the book cover and flaps.
- 114 flat, whithout contrast, poorly printed black-and-white photos.
So, it's basically a text book with some photo's inside. I didn't read it already, but I'm posting this so you don't buy this like me, expecting for "splendid illustrations" and ended up with an text book. Poorly impressed. On poor paper.
But wait, there's the color cover...
I shall update this when finishing reading. I hope the text worth it.

Beebe's quaint style and subtle humor made what was at times a very technical book quite enjoyable. I learned so much about these fascinating islands and can't wait to see them... Read morePublished 2 months ago by LeeAnn Morris
