About This Book:
Action is the flip side of dreaming. In her new memoir, Bette Blaydes Pegas travels beyond the Galápagos into a world she's only dreamed about -- a world of saying "yes" to adventure and "no" to self-doubt and fear. With her cousin and two adult daughters she enters a universe of Giant Tortoises, salt-crested Marine Iguanas, and crimson-throated Magnificent Frigatebirds. She follows the tail-drawn sand etchings of Land Iguanas, struggles to comprehend the mysteries of natural selection, and confronts other tourists who desecrate a Sea Lion shelter in gross defiance of park regulations. Her odyssey is a time for family bonding, a search for Charles Darwin, a reminder of the fierce competition for natural resources, and proof that a brave, unknown side of herself was just waiting for its own personal evolution.
Vivid, inspirational reading
"Pegas' journey to the Galápagos and observations of nature strengthened her relationship with her daughters and provided personal insights, revealed in this fine odyssey." -- Midwest Book Review
Chasing a Dream in the Galápagos - A Personal Evolution
is perfect for either those planning a Galápagos Islands cruise or those who enjoy reading about fascinating travel destinations."--Linda Garrison,
"Like all good memoirs, this is a story of overcoming personal fears and self-doubt -- and therefore of learning and growing.... As with all dreams, the trip took on a life of its own, and the author sails us through those currents with skill." --
