Review by: Maggie Fusari on July 07, 2012 :
I liked this very much and found it well worth the price. A 1st person view into the past. If you see what is there you will see with new eyes.

Review by: Randy Moore on July 01, 2012 :
This was very disappointing. It's not a book at all -- it's an article that is less than 2,000 words long. It does not talk about the pioneers of Galápagos; instead, it is merely a rambling text that reads as if it were written while waiting to see the dentist. I paid $0.99 for the text, and it was not worth it.
