This is an account of Gerald Durrell, who was a world-famous naturalist and popular author who wrote some 37 yarns, including the bestselling My Family and Other Animals. His other books include Birds, Beasts and Relatives, The Bafut Beagles and A Zoo in My Luggage. Above all, he paved the way in print for the popular presentation of the natural world on television and presented 12 series himself - the early ones - of his own expeditions. Sir David Attenborough has said: He was responsible for changing people's attitudes to zoology and changing their agenda. He showed them small animals could be as interesting as apes and elephants... He was a pioneer.
