Description

Part coming-of-age autobiography and part nature guide, Birds, Beasts, and Relatives is based on Durrell's boyhood on the island from 1933 to 1939, where he made a special study of zoology and kept a large number of the local wild animals as pets. Originally published in 1969 but long out of print, Birds, Beasts, and Relatives is filled with clever observations, amusing anecdotes, boyhood memories, and childlike wonder.
