while creating problems for the native people. Diane explains the views of the gorillas in her book while the beginning is more focused on her life and the problems she faces starting out (the boring part) then she later goes on to clarify the life of the gorillas. At first I think that Diane did this experience just for the ride and then it hits her hard when she finally interacts with the gorillas. Later when Diane starts caring for the gorillas is when problems start to arise because she wants to stop poachers, cattle grazers and tourists. It’s easy to tell with her telling of all the time she heard gorillas freak out and she would go crazy to try and save the gorillas. Towards the end she takes in two gorillas but can’t stop the people from killing tribes of gorillas to get two gorillas and then when Diane gets both of them taken from her and later they both die in a zoo. All that she had done and creating terror among the native people and their traps and other small material. Undergoing all that Diane did once she finally started writing it was filled with emotion which is easy to tell with her passion for the gorillas. She also wanted to express her connection with the gorillas and how they were being harmed and that their land was shrinking. Diane captivated many Americans in the hunt for the poachers and lives of the groups. In my view Tarzan was motivated by Diane in the essence of the human with the gorillas and that gorillas aren’t bad they are just protective and with Diane and Tarzan’s help the world looks towards gorillas differently. Diane was big on her relationship with gorillas and that they slowly grew closer to her, but that she never intruded into their lives because intruding on their lives was something that people should never do. Diane was much more than just someone who loved nature and life she was one who would do everything to protect the circle of life. You can even tell by her cover that she wanted to prove to America gorillas’ good side and that she was on that side. She may have been too pushy and obnoxious to people but others were very inspired. Her dedication to her observations and her time spent on every little detail, it showed that she was right for the job. The group I was most attached to was group 5, the instinct of the mother gorillas is inspirational and how one day when Puck’s mother Effie was sitting around and when puck was swinging and suddenly got caught in the fork of the tree and was being strangled in that split second Effie was up and at it rescuing Puck. The observer said he didn’t even realize what had happened because it occurred so fast. In my view this book was a reality to the lives of the gorillas and the slow extinction to these rare creatures although sometimes I would have preferred another book I then wanted to know the ending to these wonderful creatures.
