More fabulous animal collecting stories
on 1 April 2012
Gerald Durrell this time describes his animal collecting trip to Guiana in South America in the 1950's. Wonderfully witty anecdotes of crazy situations and colourful local characters make this an entertaining read. Durrell's particular skill is his ability to give all too human characteristics to the animals he meets, from cunning one-eyed caimans to regally nonnchalant capybara. The only negative to this book is you will be left with the irrisistable urge to read more of Durrell's travel adventures.
