    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.

    This is a paperbound reprint of a 1971 work. Eccentric in a rather grand English manner, the Durrells spread joy and mayhem from various corners of the empire, took in the impecunious despite the fact they despised them, attempted to keep up appearances in a life run amok, and managed to care for each other very much while calling each other mad. Gerald, brother of Lawrence (Spirit of Place, hence the title for this memoir) combines his affection, or at least grim acceptance of his truly dysfunctional family with his sincere love of animals and his work for the survival of both. He offers five essays, starting in Corfu and winding up in London and Africa, concluding with a devotional to one of the best-drawn dimwitted beauties (Ah! Ursula!) in literature. Hilarious.
