"This gorgeously (and generously) illustrated science book tells the story of the birth and development of the Galápagos Islands, a group of volcanic islands off the western coast of South America. It breaks down the islands' formation and habitation by plants and animals, explaining complex topics such as plate tectonics and natural selection in a way that is both interesting and clear. Additional information on Charles Darwin, volcanoes, and the native species of the islands is included at the back of the book."
