really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction
Recommended for: anyone interested in primates and/or evolution
Read in August, 2001

This is an extremely detailed and wonderful account of Jane Goodall's 40 years among African primates. I checked it out of the university library when I was a college student, and I must admit that I told them I lost it (and willfully paid for it) so I could keep it. Which makes it one of my most expensive books.

The reader becomes intimately acquainted with specific primates and their families. I felt so attached that I cried near the end.
