An Old Shell: Poems of the Galapagos by Tony Johnston

Poems in contemplation of an ecological treasure. When you stand in this place, wild and vast and stark, looking out over the endless and shining skin of the sea, you hear the flutter and roar of Creation, feel the stir of your own beginnings upon the delicate chain of life. Here, you are at the core of the mystery and poetry of Nature. So writes Tony Johnston, who visited the Galapagos Islands in 1995, in her eloquent authors note. This is her collection of thirty-four lyrical poems starring the wonderful islands and their unique inhabitants -- from the long-horned grasshopper to the rice rat -- and accompanied by naturalistic drawings by Tom Pohrt.
