'Pheasants breed readily outside their natural environments; they make excellent aviary birds and can be kept in full freedom in a park or estate. Mr Gerrits writes from his own close study of pheasants over many years. he provides full descriptions of the different varieties and gives advice on housing, feeding, breeding and rearing the young.
The colour plates by H. J. Slijper illustrate 26 species; there are also 30 photographs and 17 line drawings in the book. Mr Terry Jones of the well-known aviaries at Leckford Abbas has contributed a foreword.'
