"Informative (and often very funny) book is concerned with Gerald Durrell's life-long work to protect endangered species" --lifeoutloud.co.uk, January 2008From the Back Cover:
Mauritius, once the home of the ill-fated Dodo (symbol of Gerald Durrell's Wildlife Preservation Trusts), still has among its fauna many unique but endangered species, among them Mauritian kestrels, Telfair's skinks, Gunther's geckos and pink pigeons. When Gerald Durrell went to rescue some of these creatures from extinction, he experienced danger, discomfort and exertion, but he enjoyed himself enormously. And when the trip was over, he had a varied collection of animals to take to his Jersey sanctuary from where the progeny could, in time, be restored to Mauritius.
"This is not only an enjoyable volume, it is also, in my humble opinion, the best-written Durrell so far".
