Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most important books ever written about our connection to the natural world, GORILLAS IN THE MIST is the riveting account of Dian Fossey's thirteen years in a remote African rain forest with the greatest of the great apes. Fossey's extraordinary efforts to ensure the future of the rain forest and its remaining mountain gorillas are captured in her own words and in candid photographs of this fascinating endangered species. As only she could, Fossey combined her personal adventure story with groundbreaking scientific reporting in an unforgettable portrait of one of our closest primate relatives. Although Fossey's work ended tragically in her murder, GORILLAS IN THE MIST remains an invaluable testament to one of the longest-running field studies of primates and reveals her undying passion for her subject.

Review:

"Knuckle-walking, crouching, crawling and vocalizing in the virungas, Dr Fossey was winning the hearts of scores of gorillas...fascinating." Paul Theroux, Sunday Times

Synopsis:

A personal account of thirteen years spent living and working with a family of gorillas in the remote rain forests of the volcanic Virunga Mountains in Africa. Dian Fossey explains her relationship with these shy and affectionate beasts and the ever-constant threat from poachers.

Synopsis:

New edition of Fossey's account of living with the gorillas of Gombe, the basis for the film starring Sigourney Weaver.
