Woman in the Mists: The Story of Dian Fossey and the Mountain Gorillas of Africa Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deep in the volcano country of central Africa live some of the rarest, most intriguing animals on earth — the mountain gorillas. Here, in the mist-shrouded forests, Dian Fossey courageously dedicated her life to studying them. Here she patiently waited until the luminous-eyed gorillas accepted her presence, hugged her, and loved her...while she fought for their survival against poachers, callous researchers, zoo collectors, and local bureaucrats. And here, surrounded by these enemies, she died, mysteriously and brutally murdered.

Now, one of the world's most respected naturalist writers draws for the first time ever on Dian Fossey's personal writings to reveal the true story of a magnificent obsession...one woman's enormous empathy for a highly intelligent, desperately endangered animal — and how it ruled her life, her work, and her heart.
