Recent Reviews
  •   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
  • I read this book in two days because I just couldn't put it down. It's one of those books that works on multiple levels¬it's a personal memoir of the author's journey (starting long before the actual trip), it's a travel book that will inspire you to take a trip of your own, and it has just enough history and science thrown in that you get to feel like you're learning something along the way of this fun adventure.-Donna Hetchler
  • Pegas writes beautiful prose. Her haunting description of a village in a volcano crater that disappears when the fog rolls in and her joyful discovery of Blue-footed Boobies dancing with their mates and exchanging gifts make us feel like Galápagos insiders. What empowers us is her personal evolution from a woman who yearned for 20 years to visit the Galápagos and see Darwin's tool-making finches--but couldn't make herself get on a plane to go--into a woman who tries what she fears but desires, and discovers who she becomes.- Margaret Harmon
  • A really great read. Both entertaining and informative. If you too have been harboring a dream of visiting the Galápagos Islands then this is the book for you.- Betty M. Stiller
