How to Shoot an Amateur Naturalist

Gerald Malcolm Durrell, Author Little Brown and Company $15.45 (205p) ISBN 978-0-316-19717-5
A BBC television series based on Durrell's book The Amateur Naturalist features the author and his wife, Lee, as narrators. After a year's work on that program, covering 49,000 miles, the film crew had learned a lot of natural history, and Durrell had a new appreciation of filmmaking. This story of the journeys is vintage Durrell: breezy and entertaining as he recounts misadventures and the problems of filming wild animals, serious in his plea for conservation. The Durrells' travels took them from the English countryside to New York City, from the Shetland Islands to South Africa, to the rain forest of Panama and Arizona's Sonoran desert, to the Canadian Rockies and the island of Corfu. The author's fans will be delighted with this one. Illustrations. Foreign rights: Curtis Brown. January
