The Overloaded Ark - DURRELL, Gerald M.

This, the author's first book, is an account of an expedition he made to the little-known territory of the British Cameroons, West Africa, to capture and bring alive to this country specimens of the unique fauna. To the vast majority of readers who have never been in the jungle and whose experiences of animals is limited to visits to the Zoo, this will prove a refreshingly different kind of travel book and will give an unrivalled picture of West Africa with its unusual and entertaining inhabitants, human and animal.
