LIVING TREASURE by Ivan T. Sanderson
Kirkus Star


Email this review


Further zoological goings on in the tropics again have the contagious charm of Animal Treasures, etc. In Jamaica, British Honduras, Yucatan, Haiti, the author and his wife persist in their ardent collecting and encounter many strange beasts. Sanderson makes one share the passion of the scientist, the absurdities of some of his encounters, the excitement of the adventure, the meticulous procedure. A corking record of luck and hard work, of achievements and mishaps. Good entertainment, enhanced by charming format and illustrations.
