Author: Helen Sillett
Perhaps the world's most recognized scientist, Jane Goodall, has been a leader in the study of primates since she founded her Gombe chimpanzee research center in Tanzania forty years ago. She is equally well-known today for her commitment to conservation and animal welfare, and has recently been named a United Nations Messenger of Peace.
This Start-to-Finish book tells the story of Jane Goodall's extraordinary journey from quiet schoolgirl to preeminent chimpanzee expert and global activist. With singular determination, and against all expectation, she transformed her passion for animals into a fascinating life of adventure and discovery in the African bush. Along the way, readers will learn about the chimpanzee community at Gombe, her significant contributions to the field of animal science, and Louis Leakey, the famous archeologist who was Jane's mentor. Readers will also learn about her compassion, and her commitment to activism and empowering the world's youth through her Roots and Shoots organization for young people.
