More Description

On the occasion of Dr. Jane Goodall's 40th anniversary of groundbreaking research with the chimpanzees of Gombe, the Jane Goodall Institute has joined Stewart, Tabori & Chang in paying homage to the woman hailed by the Christian Science Monitor as "a heroine, in a hero-less time."

In the words of Stephen Jay Gould, "Jane Goodall's work with chimpanzees represents one of the western world's greatest scientific achievements." Set on her path by famed anthropologist and paleontologist Dr. Louis Leakey, who believed in her patience and persistent desire to understand animals, Goodall established the Gombe Stream Research Centre. There, her profound scientific discoveries -- including the observation of chimpanzees making and using tools -- laid the foundation for all future primate studies.

Filled with photographs from the institute's archive -- many never-before published -- along with the work of some of the world's top photographers, this beautifully illustrated volume traces the story of Dr. Goodall's work from its singular beginning to the institute's present-day international activities. It is sure to appeal to Dr. Goodall's millions of admirers the world over and to serve as a source of inspiration to many more.
