The Aye-Aye And I: A Rescue Mission In Madagascar

by Gerald Durrell

A very good account of Durrell's experience in Madagascar, one of the world's most fauna-rich areas. I hadn't read Durrell in at least six years & remembered him fondly.  Unfortunately, I found the book to be patchily written. Very interesting account of his hunts & well-expressed ecological facts, but very repetitive and incongruous.  Liked it anyway, perhaps for nostalgia's sake.
