Part of the trilogy of memoirs that inspired the television show The Durrells in Corfu: A naturalist's adventures with animals??and humans??on a Greek island.
When his family moved to a Greek island, young naturalist Gerald Durrell was able to indulge his passion for wildlife of all sorts as he discovered the new world around him??and the creatures and people who inhabited it. Indeed, Durrell's years growing up on Corfu would inspire the rest of his life.

In addition to his tales of wild animals, Durrell recounts stories about his even wilder family??including his widowed mother, Louisa, and elder siblings Lawrence, Leslie, and Margo??with undeniable wit and humor.

The final chapter in Durrell's reflections on his family's time in Greece before the start of World War II, The Garden of the Gods is a fascinating look at the childhood of a naturalist who was ahead of his time.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author's estate.… (mais)

En este, como en los otros dos volúmenes, la atenta observación de la fauna del territorio, la colorista descripción de los paisajes, la animada semblanza de figuras singulares y el humorístico relato de anécdotas tienen como telón de fondo el emocionado recuerdo de una adolescencia libre y plena.

I've been a fan of Gerald Durrell since 1960 when I read My Family and Other Animals. I didn't know until recently that later Durrell wrote two sequels to My Family and made it into a trilogy. The second book Birds Beasts and Relatives was more adult and continued that same great stories of the author and his family in Corfu. I was unsure if a third book in the series would not be just rehashing the stories already told from a slightly older angle. But I was pleased to find that this book too is a delight. It has some new to me stories about Gerald, his mother and his siblings. Some new characters are introduced, mostly friends of Lawrence Durrell who come to visit the Durrell family at their rented Corfu villa. Gerald Durrell wrote over 30 books in his life. I may not read all of them but I am glad that I discovered The Garden of the Gods. ( )

Durrell has again dug back into his childhood and the four year stint on the Greek island of Corfu for the next installment of his memoir series. This time sister Margo's relationships and brother Leslie's gun obsession take more of a center stage but don't worry, Gerald's "pets" still abound. He still has plenty of stories regarding the mishaps involving animals. Another constant is all of the Durrell children continue to lie to mother and she continues to eat it up, no questions asked, just like one of Gerald's baby birds.
I have to wonder if the family was as fun loving and accepting of the practical jokes and antics as they seem to be? What kind of household welcomes perfect strangers into their home as guests? Especially ones with no intention of leaving? And speaking of guests, what mother would put up with dead birds falling at her feet while she tried to entertain a prominent guest?
All in all, exaggerated antics aside, Garden of the Gods is a charming and funny book. ( )

This book is for Ann Peters, at one time my secretary and always my friend, because she loves Corfu and probably knows it better than I do.

That summer was a particularly rich one; it seemed as if the sun had drawn up a special bounty from the island for never had we had such an abundance of fruit and flowers, never had the sea been so warm and filled with fish, never had so many birds reared their young, or butterflies and other insects hatched and shimmered across the countryside.
