About this title


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".

From the Back Cover:

Described as the "father of conservation", Peter Scott led a crusade for endangered wildlife that captured the imagination of an entire generation and inspired many people to care about animals and their natural environments long before it was fashionable to do so. Behind Scott's charm and single-minded devotion to his chosen causes lies a complex character. Elspeth Huxley has written a wonderfully rich and readable biography, which will be important to anyone interested in the conservation of wildlife and the earth.
