"Jane Goodall's extraordinary respect and affection for the chimps she has lived among since 1960 are conveyed resoundingly in these stories. Goodall chose Alan Marks for his fine naturalistic illustrations, which, in her estimation, capture the spirit of the chimpanzees."" --"Amy Finnerty, " New York Times"Synopsis:
Dr. Goodall, the well known scientist and conservationist, presents her studies in ten true stories, gleaned from more than 30 years studying chimpanzees in the forests of Tanzania. Like humans, chimpanzees can have a dark side to their natures, but they are also capable of compassion and altruism, and the stories recounted here highlight this capacity for love. For the most part, there are no photographs of these events, and so Jane approached the illustrator Alan Marks who, she believes, has captured the true nature of chimpanzees most successfully. Their partnership has created an outstanding book.
