1st Edition. Gerald Durrell's tour of animals and wild life throughout South America. The noted naturalist finds beauty, wonderment and humor on the Argentine pampas. An account of the eight months Durrell spent travelling in Argentina during the late 1950s, collecting animals for his then recently founded Jersey Zoo.

A wealth of creatures and GD's customary hilarious telling of their antics (and his own)
