0 Reviews
Roger Conant was an author, educator, researcher, and conservationist with a dual career in zoos and in herpetology. His contribution to the Peterson Field Guide Series made him one of the most influential American herpetologists of the twentieth century. This in-depth autobiography is as much a history of American Zoos and North American Herpetology as it is an account of the diverse and exciting life of Roger Conant. Details included in this book make it a hidden treasure for twentieth century folklore as well. Conant also studied extensively in Mexico and offers detailed accounts of his several excursions which were spread throughout much of the twentieth century.
