About the Author

JANE GOODALL was born in London on April 3, 1934 and grew up in Bournemouth, on the southern coast of England. In 1960 she began studying chimpanzees in the wild in Gombe, Tanganyika (now Tarzania). After receiving her doctorate in ethology at Cambridge University, Dr. Goodall founded the Gombe Stream Research Center for the study of chimpanzees and baboons. In 1975 she established the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation to promote animal research throughout the world. Dr. Goodall is well known for her contributions to several stunning "National Geographic" films and has written six books for adults, including the bestseller "In the Shadow of Man." She has been named Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II and has received many awards, including the prestigious Kyoto Prize in Basic Science and the National Geographic Society's Hubbard Award, for distinction in research, exploration, and discovery.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. L. J. Scriven on 18 Feb. 2004
Format: Paperback
Bought this for my 8 year old son and pinched it to read myself. Jane reflects on her years and experiences in Gombe over 30 odd years, on the survival problems facing our closest cousins, on how she has helped them and lastly on what we can do about it.
As you journey along with her there are some stories that nearly made me cry and had a sobering effect on others I have recounted them to.
An enjoyable, exciting read for children - packed with great stories and adventures with an added environmental message. Buy it for your kids but also enjoy it yourself!

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 8 Feb. 1999
Format: Paperback
I liked the book because it was an adventure story. In one part, the plane crashed. Jane Goodall, Grub (her son), and Derreck (the pilot) didn't get hurt, but they had to cross a river full of crocodiles! I also like the book because it is about Africa, a continent I only know a little about. Besides the amazing animals, I learned that there are important fossil beds in Africa.
Chimps are a central part of the story. The author does a good job of describing the chimps' habits and behavior. The chimps challenge each other for the alpha position (highest ranked position in the group).
I found Jane Goodall likeable because she has interest in saving an endangered species. She reported that chimps can make tools and use them as well as we can. No one knew that before Jane discovered it. Dr. Goodall is also the leader of a special club dedicated to saving chimpanzess.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the fascinating behavior of animals.

I really enjoyed reading this book although it is aimed mainly at young people, trying to encourage them to take an interest in animals and conservation. I do hope many young people read this and become inspired by Jane's life and work. It should be in every school library and every biology teacher's lab.
