This adventure within an adventure piece details one of Lora’s experiences in the Galápagos Islands in 1973. Struggling with feeling unaccepted, rejected by the trip leader, Lora and one of her fellow travelers become lost in the highlands of Santa Cruz Island and fear they will be left behind when the fishing boat they are due to depart on leaves the next day.
