Face to Face with Orangutans by Tim Laman, Cheryll Knott

The fascinating adventures of husband and wife team Tim Laman and Cheryl Knott will bring you face to face with these important primates.

Stunning animal photography by the author accompanies fun facts and tales of adventure while giving insight into the field of animal study and observation. Conservation messages highlight the need to protect endangered animals and threatened habitats.
