It was here in 1835 that the young Charles Darwin took his first pioneering steps towards the theory of evolution. The islands came to be called ‘Darwin’s Eden’ and ‘The Galápagos Wonderland’ but not everyone saw them that way. Six years after Darwin, Herman Melville was horrified by their inhuman desolation and strange creatures. For him the archipelago was ‘evilly enchanted ground’. Edward Larson’s rich and absorbing book tells the full story of this isolated island universe, from Spanish conquistadores and British buccaneers, through Darwin’s discoveries and post-Darwinian debates to the fabulous expeditions of the Roaring Twenties, and on to the present-day struggle to conserve the archipelago’s unique environment.
