Jane Goodall and Books

If you read my post about the books that changed me, you'll know Jane Goodall's In the Shadow of Man is one of those editions. My personally signed copy of this book is one of my greatest treasures. Until very recently, I was sure that could not be topped.

But then...

I am in the final stages of completing a book with zoo keeper, Lou Grossfeldt, called Our Primate Family. Lou is one of Australia's most respected experts on primate husbandry and her work takes her around the world helping the world's endangered primates. So respected is Lou's work, that the one and only Jane Goodall has written the Foreword for Our Primate Family. She read our manuscript - gave us her support. Her words are as beautiful and eloquent and generous as the woman herself. The honour of sharing pages with such an icon overwhelms.

Our Primate Family will be released in the 2nd quarter of 2015. More to follow...
