About this book

Part travel book, part philosophical musing, Quarrington takes readers on a wide-ranging investigation of everything from blue-footed boobies, careerism and the nature of creation to pirates, Herman Melville and the precarious ecology of the planet as he cruises the Galapagos Islands on a 90-foot liner.
