The Chimpanzees I Love: Saving Their World and Ours
As a young child, Jane Goodall dreamed of living with the wild animals of Africa. As a young woman, she amazed the world with her groundbreaking discoveries about chimpanzees, memorably documented in her acclaimed National Geographic television specials. Ever since, Dr. Goodall has campaigned unceasingly for the protection of chimpanzees, the animal most closely related to humans -- and now an endangered species.
In a compelling first-person narrative written especially for young people, Jane Goodall tells the exciting adventure of her discoveries about chimpanzees' profound similarities to ourselves, from their lifelong family bonds to their ability to engage in primitive warfare. She shares endearing stories about individual chimpanzees she loves. And she tells of her own tireless efforts to save the chimpanzees from being lost forever.
Lavishly illustrated with more than eighty full-color photographs, this moving, personal account inspires young readers with wonder, courage, and hope for the future.
