Jane Goodall, one of the most recognized scientists in the Western world, became internationally famous because of her ability to observe and connect with another species. A girl of humble beginnings and training, she made scientific breakthroughs thought impossible by more experienced field observers when she was only in her twenties. Then these animals shaped Jane's life. She began tirelessly fighting to protect the environment so that chimpanzees and other animals will continue have a place and a future on our planet. Jane Goodall continues to leave the modern world with an extraordinary legacy and has changed the scientific community forever.

    Since I love wildlife when this book first came out I started reading it right away at Barns and Nobles. I admit that it's a little hard for me even though I can pretty much read a lot of books higher than my level! This is a AMAZE-BALLS book!!!!

      Great book. But for some reason I was not interested at first, but once I started reading it it was great. I really liked the book. I was glade to get to know her lifestyle better.

        Really interesting book from "Summer Reading List" about Jane Goodall, who lived with the monkeys and apes to explore about them! This book ties perfectly with Earth Day, and explains some hideouts Jane uses for it. It is super interesting, and I recommend it for animal and ape lovers! This book, in conclusion, is awesome.

          I have to admit, when I first saw this book, I was like nahh. But it was on the "Summer Reading List", and I knew who Jane Goodall is (amazing person) and I was like, "Lets give it a try!" Will never regret. I learned all about Jane Goodall and her life with the gorillas, <heart> AMAZING! I am personally a HUGE animal fan, and NatGeo Graphic books are so amazing, and those mix to epicness! Good, because it was Earth Day yesterday, and this book was really related to the biosphere. I LOVED IT!! THANKS, DOGO!
