    Description

    A Zoo in My Luggage is the colorful, first-hand account of Gerald Durrell's six-month animal-collecting trip in British Cameroon, and his attempts to create his own zoo. Motivated by a passion for wildlife, and a desire to save endangered species from extinction, Durrell assembles a glorious panoply of exotic animals - including a female baboon called Georgina, who later runs amok in a department store; a black-eared squirrel, who tries to bury nuts in his ear; and a gentlemanly chimpanzee named Chumly, who greets him with an outstretched hand. Aided by the Fon of Bafut, who houses the collection (and hosts many long and lively parties), Durrell amasses more than 250 animals. He struggles to find a home for the animals back in England, until a stroke of luck leads him to Jersey, and the eventual founding of Durrell Wildlife Park (now Jersey Zoo).

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    A phenomenon

    Gerald Durrell’s books are a phenomenon that has been giving pure pleasure to people for more than half a century.
    I grew up on them — my whole family grew up on them.
    Here, in the Czech Republic, they are very popular, and we can enjoy them in excellent, loving “old-school” translations and in the original.
    And these years, I can even listen to them unabridged!
    Too wonderful.
    Get all the Durrell books and treasure them for generations!
