Three Singles to Adventure | [Gerald Durrell]

Three Singles to Adventure

I walked up to the booking-office and uttered the magic words: 'Three singles to Adventure, please,' I said. 'First or second class?' said the clerk.So begins Gerald Durrell's account of the trip he made to South America in his quest to capture specimens. And what an adventure it was, encountering such creatures as the timid squirrel monkeys, wailing rats, an overly affectionate bird christened Cuthbert, a bad-tempered anaconda, and even piranhas.

Publisher's Summary

I walked up to the booking-office and uttered the magic words: 'Three singles to Adventure, please,' I said. 'First or second class?' said the clerk....

So begins Gerald Durrell's account of the trip he made to South America in his quest to capture specimens that had never been brought back alive before. And what an adventure it was, encountering such creatures as the timid squirrel monkeys, wailing rats, an overly affectionate bird christened Cuthbert, a bad-tempered anaconda, and even piranhas.

But out in the wilds, bringing back a living collection of animals can be frustrating and damned hard work.... But it's never dull.

    "if you like animal planet & James Herriot books"

    Gerald Durrell collected animals for zoos and then he started his own zoo. He was one of the first zoo owners to make the animals cages more like their natural homes. He worked hard for best nutrition for animals and was a leader in breeding animals in captivity because he cares about making their zoo lives as good as they could be. He is a very humorous writer. His books were published in the 50s and 60s and are not as well known later writers. I highly reccomend all his books and an glad they are still available. Some libraries no longer carry his books just because they are older books, but the stories are lively and interesting and still pertinent.

    "Tickets to another world!"

    This is a great trip to the world of animal collecting almost 50 years ago. The children (aged 7, 10 &12) love it, and his gentle wry look at the animals and the people is still very fresh today. Definite thumbs up from the family. It is especially good to listen to on long car journeys with each chapter a mini story on its own.
