Peter Scott Résumé

Peter Scott: Painter and Naturalist Elspeth Huxley

Son of the Antarctic explorer, Captain Robert Scott, Peter Scott fulfilled his father's dying wish that he should become a strenuous man, and was a championship-class skater and dinghy-racer as well as an accomplished painter. His abiding passion was for wildlife, and he travelled the world hunting and painting rare birds, before giving up shooting to found the Wildfowl Trust, and later co-found the World Wildlife Fund. Behind Scott's charm and single-minded devotion to his chosen causes lay a complex character, driven by his father's legend and by an unconventional and dominating mother. Based on access to family and friends, this biography of Scott is by the author of White Man's Country (a biography of Lord Delamere which was published in 1935), and Scott of the Antarctic.
