9780002113571: In the Shadow of Man

Both a landmark scientific study and a fascinating adventure story, this best-selling classic is an absorbing account of the early years of Jane Goodall's struggle in remote Africa to approach primates in the wild as no one had ever done before. It is also the story of her breakthrough. "Apart from its enormous scientific value, IN THE SHADOW OF MAN is absolutely fascinating to read as a st ory of discovery . . . The whole book is enthralling." -- BOSTON GLOBE
