About this book

Gorillas, once considered ferocious beasts, are now regarded as gentle giants. Only discovered in the mid-nineteenth century, the mountain gorilla has ever since been subject to considerable observation by field biologists and later by wildlife photographers and writers. Only in more recent times have their cousins, the lowland gorillas, received such attention, their forest homes having kept them much less accessible to the outside world.

In this book the authors, with stunning photography and concise text, follow the life, habits and fight for survival of these magnificent creatures.
