Description
									Charles Darwin first visited the Galapagos Islands almost 200 years ago, only to discover a land filled with plants and animals that could not be found anywhere else on earth. How did they come to inhabit the islands? How long will they remain? 

Thoroughly researched and filled with intricate and beautiful paintings, this video adaptation of the extraordinary book by acclaimed author and illustrator Jason Chin is an epic saga of the life of an island-its birth in fire, its rise to greatness, its decline, and, finally, the emergence of life on new islands.
