Reviews

"Goodall introduces and reflects on the chimpanzees of the Gombe National Park that she has known and studied. . . . Absorbing photographs from publisher Neugebauer provide intimate glimpses of baby chimps playing with family members, as well as of the other animals that populate the Gombe. A lovely look at Goodall's service to the welfare of the great apes." â€â€Publishers Weekly
