It is a thorough and beautifully documented journey through the Galapagos Islands covering everything you need to know from the brutal and bloody history of the islands to the incredible story of their unique wildlife. Read more...
Josef Litt has created one of the most comprehensive guidebook on Galapagos. He has put together a work of both in-depth information, through remarkably thorough research; as well as visual beauty, by utilizing his skills as a photographer. He covers not just the visitor sites with their unique flora and fauna, but also the history, people, geography, political context, science and conservation work, as well as general tourism topics.

I suspect this book was conceived from an uncontrollable passion which led to a self-inflicted dedication of both time and finance. Most of the time that can be a dangerous and destructive cocktail but, in this case, that cocktail is most definitely champagne. Read more...
What an outstanding piece of work by a talented photographer and writer. He answered every question that I had about the visit and through the quality of his illustrations and photography inspired me to work hard on my own photography! I would recommend it for fellow travellers or anybody who wants a true sense of what the Galapagos islands are about. A fine book!
I look forward to going to the Galapagos again in the next few days, hoping for extraordinary encounters with its spectacular fauna.
Whale Sharks are receiving increased attention from the scientists and the public. This results in amazing discoveries with Galapagos being the playground.
Galapagos photographs from Josef Litt’s many trips to the islands. Most of the images, underwater or land-based, were not published anywhere else.
Varied underwater environments in different parts of the archipelago offer stunning encounters with Galapagos wildlife in both, warm and cold waters. An entertaining account of encounters with Galapagos wildlife on their rather cold side.
