Product Description

Review

'This new edition of her (the author) 1983 book is very welcome. It's no dry description of an interesting specimen, but a fascinating account of a career, much of which was 'a series of flying leaps from one sort of frying pan into yet another fire, whether the conflagration concerned hunting, politics or women.' --Country Life

'His niece Miriam unravels the complex life of her uncle in a portrait that is both affectionate and judicious.' --Good Book Guide

'She reveals a man who was both madcap maverick (someone almost too improbably eccentric for non-fiction) as well as being a vital ecological pioneer.' --The Jewish Chronicle

About the Author

Miriam Rothschild was the niece of Walter Rothschild and, a renowned naturalist herself, shared her uncle's passion for the natural world. In 1995 she was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society and was made a Dame in 2000. Dame Miriam died in 2005.
