Waterstones Says

A towering figure in the history of conservation, Sir Peter Scott founded the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and also the Worldwide Fund for Nature and this absorbing volume is a treasure trove of articles and broadcasts that paint a vivid picture of a truly remarkable individual.  

A Life In Nature is 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. Illustrated by Peter's own beautiful illustrations.

Sir Peter Scott had a truly incredible life. He was the only son of legendary explorer Captain Scott. His godfather was JM Barrie and he was married to Elizabeth Jane Howard. He also represented Great Britain and Northern Ireland at sailing in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games, winning a bronze medal. He founded the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and also helped to found the Worldwide Fund for Nature.

This is a beautiful and timely re-discovered book, perfect for those who are interested in preserving our planet.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Patron Saint of Conservation' - Sir David Attenborough

'Peter Scott was a huge influence on my childhood...Later on in life I had the good fortune both to meet and to interview him, and he remains, for me, a hero. His knowledge, his kindness to me and his generosity of spirit have remained an influence in my own sphere of natural history....To meet one's heroes can sometimes be a let-down. That was most certainly not the case with Peter Scott.' - Alan Titchmarsh
