"Fortunately, the biography transcends its rather awestruck beginning and grows, detail by detail, into an absorbing portrait."
From the Publisher
Annotation This biography of the noted anthropologist Jane Goodall recounts her ground-breaking research into chimpanzee behavior, which had stunning implications for scientists and also caught the interest of the general public. Dale Peterson describes her earliest years as a lone researcher, the writing of her groundbreaking book, IN THE SHADOW OF MAN, and the growth of her research projects at the Gombe preserve. Along the way, there were loves, two marriages, a divorce, a spouse's death by cancer, and her worldwide campaign for protection of primates and against their trade, exhibition, and ownership. Peterson has collaborated with Goodall on several books, including collections of her letters. A New York Times Notable Book of the Year for 2006.
Editors Note A biography of Jane Goodall describes how she revolutionized the study of primates through her years of study of the chimpanzees of Gombe and helped establish radical new standards and a new intellectual style in the study of animal behavior.
Editors Note 2 This essential biography of one of the most influential women of the past century shows how truly remarkable Jane Goodall’s accomplishments have been. Goodall was a secretarial school graduate when Louis Leakey, unable to find someone with more fitting credentials, first sent her to Gombe to study chimpanzees. In this acclaimed work, Dale Peterson details how this young woman of uncommon resourcefulness and pluck would go on to set radically new standards in the study of animal behavior. He vividly captures the triumphs and setbacks of her dramatic life, including the private quest that led to her now-famous activism. Peterson, a longtime Goodall collaborator, has a unique knowledge of his subject. Candid and illuminating, this work will be a revelation even to readers who are familiar with the public Goodall as presented in her own writing.
