5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 22 Nov 2005
This review is from: In the Kingdom of Gorillas: Fragile Species in a Dangerous Land (Paperback)
I read this book while on a trip to Rwanda & Uganda to see the mountain gorilla’s. It is a magnificent book not just because of the couples work with the Gorilla’s in difficult terrain but also because of their initiative to start eco tourism (essential to saving the Gorillas) in the face of much opposition (including Dian Fossey). It is enchanting to read about the high quality of the relationship between the couple and their work with the local people (including the lead up to the chilling Genocide).
I am planning on rereading it.

This review is from: In the Kingdom of Gorillas: Fragile Species in a Dangerous Land (Paperback)
This is a fantastic book. It looks at the authors experiences in Rwanda studying mountain gorillas. It is fascinating to read of the individual gorillas and the authors relationships with them, as well as how they studied them. You get a real feel for their dedication to these magnificent creatures. This book explores conservation in Rwanda, including the setting up of the Mountain Gorilla Project which helped introduce ecotourism to the world and contributed greatly to the Gorillas survival. The book touches upon the authors relationship with Dian Fossey and is interesting for another view on this much lauded conservationist. It also has some powerful chapters on the Rwandan genocide which leaves you shocked and also thankfully better informed about this terrible event. This was an immensely enjoyable read and is highly recommended.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

Anyone interested in or is going to Uganda to see the Gorillas must read this book. Also a recommended read, Gorillas in the mist to get a different point of view. I enjoyed this read much more and was lucky enough to visit one of the same Gorilla groups they studied. Very overwhelming experience that will stay with me for a lifetime.
