Product Description

Review

George B. SchallerAuthor of "The Year of the Gorilla"Mountain gorillas owe their survival to a very few innovative and far-sighted individuals. Foremost among these are the authors of "In the Kingdom of Gorillas" who, with a dream in their hearts, devoted a quarter century to these splendid apes. I observed with admiration and fascination as they established a pioneering program in conservation that combines research, ecotourism, and education. Its shining success saved the gorillas during the recent turbulent decades. In eloquent and gripping prose, Bill and Amy chronicle the compassionate fight on behalf of these our most majestic kin.

About the Author

Bill Weber and Amy Vedder, of the Wildlife Conservation Society, have devoted more than twenty-five years to the cause of conservation in nearly thirty countries in Africa and around the world. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: 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.

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 10 Feb. 2007
Format: 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.

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.
