"Nicholl's book is filled with fascinating natural history tales, from volcanically heated seas melting the resin that holds a ship together to encounters with foot-long centipedes, and also includes a sobering, but ultimately hopeful account of the efforts to conserve the archipelago's floar and fauna.  It's a book you'd want to read on a plane flight to the Galapagos.  Its also a book that will make you want to book that flight."--Alan de Queiroz, author of The Monkey's Voyage
