When Joanna Greenfield was barely in her twenties, she was offered a once-in-a-lifetime chance to follow one of the last-known populations of wild chimpanzees in East Africa. Determined to earn her place as a wildlife researcher, she set of from peaceful Kenya into politically hazardous Uganda. From there, a small team of guide led her into the mountains. Here she depicts the contrasting beauty of the savanna and the rain forest, and the determination required to wait for one transcendent encounter in the wild. Eventually she must decide whether it has become too dangerous to stay in the rain forest, even though she knows she may never be allowed to return. This is the true story of one woman's burning mission to connect with animals. It is an adventure story of an against-the-odds quest for a disappearing wilderness few of us have ever glimpsed.
Little, Brown and Company, 2009. Hardback, 310 pp.
