Travelers can also consider the robust inventory of field guides, including the comprehensive Galápagos, a Natural History Guide by Michael H. Jackson and texts dedicated to marine life, ornithology, and the archipelago’s exotic flora.
For a sense of place with more of a plot, Herman Melville’s The Enchanted Isles and Kurt Vonnegut’s Galápagos are two of the most fascinating novels set here.
