About this book

This is both a travel narrative and an account of the destruction of both habitats and species. In his travels across three continents, the author sought every species of endangered primate he could. What he found was species and habitats under increasing threat, through the `deluge' of uncontrolled logging, mining and farming. His message is clear; this threatens not only the primates, but the highest primate of all - man.
