National Geographic Ecuador and Galapagos Adventure Map
National Geographic's Ecuador and Galapagos Adventure Map is designed to meet the unique needs of adventure travelers detailed, durable, and accurate. Ecuador and Galapagos includes the locations of thousands of towns and villages, plus a clearly marked road network complete with distances and designations for highways, roads and more. What sets National Geographic Adventure Maps apart from traditional road maps are the hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse, unique, and exotic destinations within Ecuador and the Galapagos islands including national parks and reserves, World Heritage sites, archeological sites, churches, spas, and more. The front side of the map shows the southern half of Ecuador including the provinces of Zamora, Chinchipe, Loja, El Oro, Azuay, Canar, Santa Elena, Guayas, Chimborazo, and Morona-Santiago. Galapagos is presented separately at larger scale, providing greater detail of the islands. Travelers to these unique islands often come to experience the unusual wildlife studied by Charles Darwin. Areas noted for their beaches, surfing, diving, and fishing are marked with activity symbols for outdoor enthusiasts wishing to further explore the islands and Ecuador's coastline. The provinces of Bolivar, Carchi, Cotopaxi, Esmeraldas, Imbabura, Los Rios, Manabi, Napo, Orellana, Tungurahua, Pastaza, Pichincha, Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas, and Sucumbios are included on the reverse side.

The Ecuador Reader: History, Culture, Politics
The Ecuador Reader: History, Culture, Politics
Encompassing Amazonian rainforests, Andean peaks, coastal lowlands, and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador's geography is notably diverse. So too are its history, culture, and politics, all of which are examined from many perspectives in The Ecuador Reader. Spanning the years before the arrival of the Spanish in the early 1500s to the present, this rich anthology addresses colonialism, independence, the nation's integration into the world economy, and its tumultuous twentieth century. Interspersed among forty-eight written selections are more than three dozen images. The voices and creations of Ecuadorian politicians, writers, artists, scholars, activists, and journalists fill the Reader, from Jose Maria Velasco Ibarra, the nation's ultimate populist and five-time president, to Pancho Jaime, a political satirist; from Julio Jaramillo, a popular twentieth-century singer, to anonymous indigenous women artists who produced ceramics in the 1500s; and from the poems of Afro-Ecuadorians, to the fiction of the vanguardist Pablo Palacio, to a recipe for traditional Quiteno-style shrimp. The Reader includes an interview with Nina Pacari, the first indigenous woman elected to Ecuador's national assembly, and a reflection on how to balance tourism with the protection of the Galapagos Islands' magnificent ecosystem. Complementing selections by Ecuadorians, many never published in English, are samples of some of the best writing on Ecuador by outsiders, including an account of how an indigenous group with non-Inca origins came to see themselves as definitively Incan, an exploration of the fascination with the Andes from the 1700s to the present, chronicles of the less-than-exemplary behavior of U.S. corporations in Ecuador, an examination of Ecuadorians' overseas migration, and a look at the controversy surrounding the selection of the first black Miss Ecuador.
