Summary

On July 16, 1963, Jane Goodall stepped onto the shores of the Tanganyika in Gombe National Park in Tanzania, Africa, for the very first time. The 23-year-old researcher was about to begin the adventure of a lifetime, studying wild chimpanzees in their forest home. The discoveries she made there about chimpanzee behavior changed the way people thought about chimpanzees, as well as human beings. Since then, Goodall has become a tireless conservationist, working to protect the chimpanzees and improve their lives. Her work has spanned more than 50 years. This new volume explores Goodall's fascinating research and how it has opened windows into both primates' and humans' behavior.
