About this book

Foreword by Gerald Durrell
Charles Waterton was an eccentric Victorian, who travelled alone in the South American jungles, was a renowned taxidermist, but above all was an ardent conservationist who fought against the destruction and pollution of 19th century industrialisation. A much-needed biography of a seminal figure.
