Summary, etc.:
For animal lovers of all ages, the true story of how Gerald Durrell and his wife founded England's Jersey Zoo. The book begins with an account of Durrell's third trip to the British Cameroons in West Africa, during which he and his wife capture animals to start their own zoo. Returning to England with a few additions to their family, they have nowhere to put them as they haven't yet secured a place for their zoo. Durrell's account of how he manages his menagerie in all sorts of places throughout England while finding a permanent home for the animals provides as much adventure as capturing them--From publisher description.
