Synopsis

Dian Fossey by Liz Gogerly

As well as telling the story of Fossey's life from her childhood in California to her years as head of a major research project in Rwanda and her violent death, this book looks at the impact of her work on the wider world. The methods behind her unique insights into the lives of mountain gorillas and the similarities between them and human beings are explained, and quotes from Fossey and her contemporaries give a fascinating glimpse into this extraordinary woman's mind.

Reviews

The book is well researched, well written and very detailed... Ideal for project work, perhaps for ages 13 to 15, it is recommended for the reference section of the school library. School Librarian, Winter 2002 A superb series...These books would be excellent both for a library and for children and teachers to read as part of a science course. TES
