I got this softcover from a local Savers thrift shop. It's a colorful look at the Galapagos Islands, featuring its wildlife as well as its history. Dramatic and sometimes tragic incidents involving people stranded on the islands (which are mostly without fresh water) contrast with modern attempts at conservation, and the natural wonders contrast with some very colorful human behaviors (check out the bit about the nudist German with the steel dentures (!)).
