Journeys to the Galapagos Islands

A unique ecosystem, separated and isolated, is the hallmark of the Galapagos Islands; they have been visited over the centuries by various nations and contributed to the theory of evolution as Charles Darwin famously stopped there for a few weeks. This site offers numerous selections of texts that pertain to these islands from a 1535 letter to Darwin’s observations. Links to maps, an extensive bibliography, a listing of ships that have sailed to the islands, and more add to the utility of this site.
