Charles Darwin first visited the Galápagos Islands almost 200 years ago, only to discover a land filled with plants and animals that could not be found anywhere else on earth. How did they come to inhabit the island? How long will they remain?

Thoroughly researched and filled with intricate and beautiful paintings, this extraordinary book by Award-winning author and artist Jason Chin is an epic saga of the life of an island-born of fire, rising to greatness, its decline, and finally the emergence of life on new islands. Chin''s approach makes this book a must-have common core tool for teachers and librarians introducing scientific principals to young students.
