I am a reader of African Wildlife regarding behavior & Habatit.This Book is very informative & Exciting. It reads like an African Adventure in the Jungles of the Congo Basin, But it is not Mr.Schaller not only gives you scientific facts he also shares a sense of feeling about these magnificent creatures. I highly recommend this book to any one who is interested in the Behavior of Gorillas.
