Synopsis: "Pete's photographs are an artist's representation of the extraordinary wildlife of the Galapagos."
--From the Foreword by Graham Watkins, Ph.D., former Executive Director of the Charles Darwin Foundation (Galapagos)

Pete Oxford and Reneé Bish spent a decade creating fresh and exceptional images of one of the world's most remarkable places--and the result is this collection of once-in-a-lifetime shots. The two photographers have fashioned an unashamed celebration of the everyday life in the Galapagos that truly captures its essence and spirit. Every picture will leave readers awestruck and delighted: a sea lion mother with her baby; iguanas swimming in deep blue waters; a brilliantly-colored vermilion flycatcher resting on Spanish moss; a penguin atop Pinnacle Rock, surveying a magnificent landscape below. In addition, there's a spectacular record of the volcanic eruption of Fernandina in February 1995--one of the geological events fundamental to the archipelago's character.

These stunning photos, as well as the compelling accompanying text and a map of the islands, will help us better understand the beauty and uniqueness of the Galapagos--and the importance of conserving its sanctity.

Product Description: A spectacular photographic homage to the Galapagos Islands' officially endorsed by both the Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Foundation. This unmatched volume pays tribute to a place that's extolled as one of the world's most popular eco-destinations. The book has a special design that transforms it into an unusual two-sided coffee book. The first section consists of amazing images that showcase the islands' natural wonders. Then, flip it over to read the second section: a compelling description of the struggle to maintain this amazing ecological environment. Stunning visuals of the islands' green and thriving landscape and its diverse wildlife including the famed tortoises, waved albatrosses, blue-footed boobies, and dolphins provide a full understanding of the Galapagos's extraordinary ecosystem. The comprehensive text enhances the images with background on the struggle for conservation, the remarkable achievements of the National Park and the Foundation, and future challenges of maintaining this fragile and breathtaking region in an era of out-of-control development.
