Sir Peter Scott had a truly incredible life. He was the only son of legendary explorer Captain Scott. His godfather was J.M. Barrie and he was married to Elizabeth Jane Howard.

He founded the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and also helped to found the Worldwide Fund for Nature. This book presents a portrait of Peter Scott collected from his own conversations, articles and broadcasts including thoughts on expeditions to Lapland, Conservation and Africa, his travels in Europe and much more.
