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, About.com
  • "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." --North County Times
