“Chimpanzees, more like us than any other living animal, form a living link between two worlds, human and non-human beings. When David Greybeard reached out to touch my hand I needed no words to understand his message of reassurance: and I loved him.”
In this enchanting book, world-renowned scientist and conservationist Jane Goodall brings together stories gleaned from nearly 40 years of studying chimpanzees in the forests of Tanzania. As the stories recounted here demonstrate, chimpanzees are capable of great compassion, altruism, and love.
