Her revolutionary observations of chimpanzee behavior at the Gombe Stream Research Center in Tanzania earned Jane Goodall both public acclaim and scientists' criticism. Greene (a freelance writer/historian who has written biographies of other public figures) chronicles Goodall's life from her childhood in England through crises and honors, to her recent work as an animal rights advocate and conservationist. This paperback edition of the 2005 hardback includes a timeline (1934-2007), photos, and references. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
