About this book

Amateur primatologist Dale Peterson embarked on a project with Jane Goodall which took him through Africa to observe chimpanzees and the individuals who study them. This book is a sympathetic portrait of a troubled continent and all those, both human and otherwise, who live there.

"Exhilarating [...] [An] absorbing adventure-nature story."
