A must for animal lovers everywhere,

This review is from: Gorillas in the Mist: A Remarkable Story of Thirteen Years Spent Living with the Greatest of the Great Apes (Paperback)
A detailed account of how Dian Fossey found herself studying mountain gorillas. A very personal odyssey of a remarkable woman who dedicated her life (quite literally) to saving these majestic creatures. Far from being the mad woman portrayed in the movie she describes the heartache of losing the two young gorillas to a european zoo and the overwhelming grief of losing her beloved digit. This book is a must for all animal lovers and particularly those who love the greatest of the great apes.
