Naturally, all of Dr. Conant's extensive herpetological work receives in-depth coverage as well, as do his many trips around the world. Much information on Isabelle Hunt Conant and Howard and Kathryn Gloyd, plus short vignettes of Conant's numerous herpetological and zoological acquaintances, colleagues and friends. This wonderful autobiography is fully illustrated with 31 colour and 147 b/w photos, b/w drawings, vignettes of 25 herpetologists and 16 zoo personalities.
