About this book

Gerald Durrell's writing was characterised by the combination of exceptional storytelling ability and his acutely perceptive and entertaining observations of the animal kingdom. Here, his widow, Lee Durrell has chosen a range of extracts covering his travels, from Corfu to Cameroon, and from Argentina to Madagascar. A hugely varied and enjoyable anthology, which is a fitting tribute to a great conservationist, writer and naturalist.
