As Dublin Zoo makes the transition from bars and cages to state-of-the-art animal habitats it is appropriate to record its story so far. Beginning in 1831, stories of animals and visitors are interwoven to record magical moments as visitors experienced the smells, sounds, behaviors, and magic of exotic animals. The mixed fortunes of the zoo are traced as it survived the famine years, political trouble, economic hardship, and public discomfort with wild animals kept in cages. ""de Courcy's hefty book is filled with incredible full-page photographs of the animals that make the Dublin Zoo a top-notch destination for families centuries after its advent.""

She travelled the Australian outback with her husband, John, and wrote several guidebooks. She has an international reputation as a historian of zoos. In 2003, some years after John's death, she returned to Ireland and is now a full-time writer. Her book An Adventure in Grief (Cork, 2009) recounts how Catherine coped with the death of her husband.Review:
