About this book

Internationally renowned nature photographer Art Wolfe has created a rare and moving portrait of Earth's vanishing primates. An incredible visual journey, this book offers an exciting glimpse of gorillas, monkeys, apes, and other primates at home in the jungle. Wolfe travelled around the globe capturing as many species of primates on film as possible, journeying to the remote jungles of Central and South America, Uganda, and Rwanda, and to research centers and wildlife refuges worldwide. The resulting photographs celebrate the exotic beauty of these intelligent and, all too often, endangered species. Biologist Sleeper's accompanying text presents fascinating insights drawn from her many years spent observing primates. A marvelous blend of word and image.
