"Jackson tells delightful little stories through this unusual natural history guide. This is unusual because it's so uplifting. The Galápagos Islands are a place of wonder, with such rich, abundant wildlife and natural history that readers will yearn to experience them first-hand and not just through a book. But this guide will do for a start. [Here] is the kind of book that belongs in every nature lover's library." -- Margaret Mironiwicz, The Globe and Mail
"The book is more than a simple guide, it contains information gleaned from the extensive literature existing on the Galápagos Islands, combining it with first-hand experience of the author, who worked in the archipelago as a naturalist guide and as a zoologist." -- Marinus Hoogmoed
About the Author
M.H. Jackson has worked in the Galápagos Islands as a naturalist guide and has done research and led tours to the islands for various organizations. He is now teaching sciences at St. Michael's University School, Victoria, B.C. His wife, Monica, prepared many of the drawings and maps for this book.

The other books I enjoyed were Terrestrial Life of Galapagos and Marine Life of Galapagos (available in Ecuador/at the National Park store in Puerto Ayora) and The Beak of the Finch. The wildlife of the Galapagos book wasn't used.
Jackson was my first book on the Galapagos (aside from the chapter in Voyage of the Beagle) and it led me into a sense of wonder, gratitude, and responsibility for a unique place that our species must work hard to deserve and preserve, given how we have treated it in the past.
