What We’re Reading at Perrot
[Non-Fiction] This is a beautiful book, filled with wonderful pictures of the flora and fauna of the Galápagos. The text provokes the imagination of any naturalist. This cluster of volcanic islands near the Equator always makes one think of Edens lost. Is this where prehistory still exists? Who can ever forget the ancient mariner with the albatross around his neck? Is this an albatross from those seemingly barren islands? Naturalist or not, one can’t help but feast on this book. It is a treat for the eyes and a treat for the mind.
