Product Description

Review

"Informative (and often very funny) book is concerned with Gerald Durrell's life-long work to protect endangered species" --lifeoutloud.co.uk; January 2008 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Gerald Durrell lived in Corfu with his family as a boy and became fascinated by the island's natural history; these years are famously documented in My Family and Other Animals. His lifetime's work began with expeditions to collect endangered animals from all over the world and bring them to his breeding sanctuary. The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust now operates conservation programmes worldwide, carrying on Durrell's mission to save species from extinction. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have recently rediscovered the pleasures of reading Gerald Durrell when I came across these reprints from Summersdale publishing. It has been a wonderful experience revisiting these magical true life stories stories and even more poignant in today's climate. A Man ahead of his time.

Enjoyed this as with all Durrell's writing. Not as good as My Family but still told with his great attention to detail and wit.

Format: Paperback
First published in 1964 so a much earlier book than The Aye-Aye And I. Unlike many of his previous books which chronicled his adventures 'collecting' animals Menagerie Manor deals with his Jersey zoo and its occupants.

Overturning the stereotype of a zoo as a place of captivity in which animals are kept in appalling conditions, a zoo ahead of its time. Whilst for me this doesn't begin to compare with his earliest books it is still full of a wit and a wonderful attention to detail, made even better by the use of pen and ink illustrations, that readers of Durrell's books have come to expect.
