This book charts one man's extraordinary experiences in some of the most remote islands in the world. From 1964-70, the author Roger Perry served as the Director of the Charles Darwin Research Station on the Galapagos Islands, the famously isolated archipelago on which Darwin based his ground-breaking studies that unlocked the secrets of the origin of species. Island Days contains a wealth of delightful recollections, pithy anecdotes and fascinating information on the exotic flora and fauna of these beautiful and extreme outposts. It stands as a remarkable account of an unusual life.
