The Best of Gerald Durrell Summary

The Best of Gerald Durrell by Lee Durrell

An irresistible collection of the very best of Gerald Durrell's writings, selected by his widow Lee Durrell. Many people's introduction to Gerald Durrell was 'My Family and Other Animals', the glorious description of his childhood in Corfu, full of sunshine, humour and sheer delight in discovering the natural world and the animals inhabiting it. Durrell spent his life contributing in every way he could to the conservation struggle. By the time he died in 1995 he had written nearly forty books, amusing countless readers and inspiring them to join the conservation fight. Durrell's ability to tell a good story and his acutely perceptive observations of both animals and the human species are unrivalled. This lavishly illustrated collection serves as a glowing testimony to one of the animal world's most famous champions.
