about

A new book by Bruce Epler, Galápagos Visionary and Chronicler This intriguing and unique book summarizes the history of a species that only recently, at least in geological time, arrived in the Galápagos Islands: MAN. While literally thousands of scientific, newspaper and magazine articles, natural history guidebooks and television specials have extolled the remarkable natural history of the islands, few authors have addressed their intriguing five hundred years of human history. Consequently, most of those who are interested in or visit the "Enchanted Isles" are ignorant of man's often desperate, sometimes enlightening, other times tumultuous but always fascinating plight in the islands. Before exploring the story of human beings in Galápagos, a brief natural history of the islands is provided so the reader can appreciate why they are considered an ecological jewel of global importance and gain insight into why the growing presence of man evokes controversy.
