As well as telling the story of Fossey's life from her childhood in California to her years as head of a major research project in Rwanda and her violent death, Scientists Who Made History: Dian Fossey looks at the impact of her work on the wider world. The methods behind her unique insights into the lives of mountain gorillas and the similarities between them and human beings are explained, and quotes from Fossey and her contemporaries give a fascinating glimpse into this extraordinary woman's mind.
