The Whispering Land Оценка: 4.8 (13)
Genre: animals
Annotation:
Fans of Gerard Durrell’s beloved classic My Family and Other Animals and other accounts of his lifelong fascination with members of the animal kingdom will rejoice at The Whispering Land. The sequel to A Zoo in My Luggage, this is the story of how Durrell and his wife’s zoo-building efforts at England’s Jersey Zoo led them and a team of helpers on an eight- month safari in Argentina to look for South American specimens. Through windswept Patagonian shores and tropical forests in Argentina, from ocelots to penguins, fur seals to parrots, Durrell captures the landscape and its inhabitants with his signature charm and humor.

Missing the beginning of "Chapter Eight A WAGON-LOAD OF 'BICHOS'".
  
   I guess this is because of the source, you must be a Soviet edition for English learners. The CENSORED fragment,I suppose, tells the story of "Caporal", the son of a former Hungarian prime minister in exile after the establishment of communism in Hungary. I do not have the English text. I detected the lack after collating the text with the translation into Spanish of Alianza Editorial, Madrid, 1983.
