Summary
The complete trilogy that inspired Masterpiece production The Durrells in Corfu in one volume. The tales of a naturalist and his family, who left England for the Greek island of Corfu-where they interacted with fascinating locals of both human and animal varieties-these memoirs have become beloved bestsellers and inspired the delightful series that aired on PBS television. Included in this three-book collection are: My Family and Other Animals : Ten-year-old Gerald Durrell arrives on sun-drenched Corfu with this family and pursues his interest in natural history, making friends with the island's fauna-from toads and tortoises to scorpions and geckos-while reveling in the joyous chaos of growing up in an unconventional household. Birds, Beasts and Relatives : Written after a boyhood spent studying zoology, this memoir is part nature guide, part coming-of-age tale, and all charmingly funny memoir. The Garden of the Gods : In the conclusion of the trilogy, Durrell shares more tales of wild animals and his even wilder family, including his mother, Louisa, and his siblings Lawrence, Leslie, and Margo, in the years before World War II. "[Durrell's] books have an unfailing charm ... It is a tribute to his skill that one never tires of his accounts" (Chicago Tribune). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author's estate
