Description

This is an account of Gerald Durrell, who was a world-famous naturalist and popular author who wrote some 37 yarns, including the bestselling "My Family and Other Animals". His other books include "Birds, Beasts and Relatives", "The Bafut Beagles" and "A Zoo in My Luggage". Above all, he paved the way in print for the popular presentation of the natural world on television and presented 12 series himself - the early ones - of his own expeditions. Sir David Attenborough has said: "He was responsible for changing people's attitudes to zoology and changing their agenda. He showed them small animals could be as interesting as apes and elephants...He was a pioneer."

Author Biography

Douglas Botting's biography of GAVIN MAXWELL was hugely praised. His previous books reflect his interest in travel, exploration and wild places. He was an exploration film-maker for the BBC's `World About Us' and became a full-time writer with the publication of his highly praised biography of the German explorer-naturalist Alexander von Humboldt, Humboldt and the Cosmos.
