Many of Sir Peter’s finest works are here reproduced, along with some fascinating pages and sketches from his notebooks, while in the text he talks about his career as a painter, his work with the Wildfowl Trust, his efforts to save the earth’s natural heritage from destruction by man, and the travels and encounters he has had the fortune to enjoy – including his recent visit to China. The 105 paintings and drawings in this book span a continuing career of over 40 years — from 1937 to I980 — and include paintings made all over the world, of other animals as well as birds.”
