About this product
- DescriptionThe author is a real-life version of Amelia Earhart, Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Isac Dineson, rolled into one. This is a first-person account of a woman Peace Corps volunteer-turned-medical researcher-turned-veterinarian-turned- missionary. Her mission was to save a small group of endangered great apes -- the bobo -- from the grips of civil war in Zaire, the heart of Africa. She made this her mission, and after eight harrowing years the reader will be breathless with amazement in her struggles to get the endangered animals to safety. (This includes caring for a pregnant ape giving birth almost as the crate is being taken to the airport ...and almost preventing her final escape.) Includes art-book quality illustrations throughout, including 16-page full-colour insert.
