Author Bio
Jane Goodall
Jane Goodall is the daughter of Mortimer Herbert, a businessman and race-car driver, and his wife, Myfanwe (or Vanne), a writer. She married Hugo van Lawick, a nature photographer, in 1964, whom she later divorced. In 1973 she married Derek Bryceson, a member of Tanzania's parliament and director of national parks, who died of cancer in 1980. She had one son, Hugo Eric Louis, with her first husband. Goodall grew up with an interest in animals and a desire to visit Africa one day. Following her high school graduation, she made the voyage and met the renowned paleontologist and anthropologist Dr. Louis S. B. Leakey, who offered her a job as an assistant. Despite her lack of solid credentials (she was a graduate of a secretarial school), Goodall was soon given an opportunity to engage in a six-month field study with the chimpanzees of Gombe Stream Reserve Centre in Tanzania, which she accepted (1960). This was the beginning of one of the longest studies of a particular animal species ever conducted. Goodall received her Ph.D. from Cambridge University in 1965, lectured at Stanford University in the early 1970s, and in 1977, established the Jane Goodall Institute for wildlife preservation, study, and education. Goodall has starred in several National Geographic television specials on her work with chimpanzees, and she has received various grants and prizes, including the R. R. Hawkins Award from the Association of American Publishers (1987) for "THE CHIMPANZEES OF GOMBE: PATTERNS OF BEHAVIOR.


"It is apparent that Goodall has delved deep within herself to produce an open and at times, brutally honest memoir. Goodall is proud of her journey and longs to share it with others, which makes reading REASON FOR HOPE a truly spiritual experience." - Martin Rowe September 1999
