Really enjoyed this book. Can't believe she went out there and roamed the forest mostly all by herself. I would not ever camp in the rainforest overnight for fear of the jungle cats. At times her mother was there to help, and luckily they both survived. What an hard but amazing life she led. So interested I ordered two other books by her.

Jane Goodall's wonderful and long-term observations of chimpanzee behavior. It contains some nice black and white pictures of the chimps, too.
