About this book

The author's lively account of his experiences in ten countries around the world with conservationists trained by Gerald Durrell.
`A Noah's Ark of a book, full of the oddest things imaginable: muggers and ticks, giant jumping rabbits, and ganja-eating rodents . . . Hilarious yet pessimistic, moving and sad, Edward Whitley is a wonderful writer, as good as O'Hanlon or even Durrell himself.' William Dalrymple
