ᰂ Hardcover ῲ Floreana: A Woman's Pilgrimage to the Galapagos  ⚥ Ebook By Margret Wittmer ⚾ ᰂ Hardcover ῲ Floreana: A Woman's Pilgrimage to the Galapagos ⚥ Ebook By Margret Wittmer ⚾ Although the adventure detailed in this autobiography is extraordinary, the account itself is rendered less so by the author s emphasis on personalities over events, with a humorless determination to expose the flaws in others, and by her lack of introspection about her role as a pioneer explorer In 1932, when Wittmer then pregnant , her husband, Heinz, and his son, Harry Germans in search of an Edenesque environment arrived on Floreana, a remote island in the Galapagos, they first dwelled in caves once inhabited by pirates, the roads were tracks made by wild donkeys and their only neighbors were a misanthropic back to nature theorist and his disciple The Wittmers learned self sufficiency by doing and sometimes by doing again, as when wild bulls tore up crops or they discovered they were thatching their roof the wrong way and it was not watertight Soon an eccentric baroness mysteriously appears, proclaims herself the island s empress and just as mysteriously disappears, leaving a shooting in her wake President Roosevelt even came to visit them although they missed him , and they entertained Thor Heyerdahl s archeological expedition Wittmer still resides on the island she settled Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.In 1932, Margaret Wittmer leaves Germany with her husband and step son and travels to Floreana, a small, almost unpopulated island in the Galapagos chain, where they settle, clear land, and, after five months of living in old pirates caves, move into the house they finish just in time for Margaret to have a baby Over time, the Wittmers acquire a number of remarkable neighbors, including convicts, military personnel and a mysterious baroness who aspires to build a hotel for millionaires They receive visits from people as diverse as Franklin D Roosevelt and Thor Heyerdahl, who comes to investigate a reported head much like the ones on Easter Island, only to find it was carved by Margaret s husband There are wild bulls and boars, a dog named Lump that serves as a babysitter, a distant war, a daughter who would rather have a machete or a hoe than a doll, years of settled life, and finally grandchildren At times the entire situation borders on the unbelievable, but Margaret Wittmer provides equal measures of intrigue, fantasy and common sense as she writes in her down to earth and often very humorous fashion about her
