"First in a planned Traveling Photographer series, this will delight armchair explorers and animal lovers."—KIRKUS REVIEWS (Ages 8-12)

A SMITHSONIAN Notable Book for Children

Powerful but shy, the African mountain gorilla struggles for survival in the rainforests of Uganda’s national parks. Through extraordinary images and a compelling text, wildlife photographer Richard Sobol leads us on an arduous journey to the gorillas’ hidden habitats and offers a hushed, close-up look at the gentle giants as they nibble on leaves for their morning meal. Striking photographs of the little-seen ritual remind readers of the wonders of this dwindling species, while a first-person narrative describes the photographer’s journey—and tells of efforts being made to preserve these magnificent creatures.
Back matter includes mountain gorilla facts, online resources, a glossary, and an afterword by Leonardo DiCaprio.

About the Author:

Richard Sobol took the photographs that illustrate CONSTRUCTION ZONE by Cheryl Willis Hudson. He lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–6—Sobol takes readers along on his journey to central Africa in search of mountain gorillas. As he prepares for his encounter, he shares what he has learned about this critically endangered species. He weaves facts about their daily lives and social structure into his account. His photos of the people and landscapes near Bwindi National Park reveal the close proximity of human fields and villages to the mountainous area where the 650 gorillas live. Guided by park rangers who strictly limit visitor access to the gorilla area, Sobol slips on muddy paths, crawls over logs, and battles dense brush to find the huge creatures eating their leafy breakfast. His photos and commentary offer insightful observations of old and young gorillas on the ground and in the trees. He explains the photography techniques he used to capture various images. War, diseases, poaching, and habitat loss threaten the mountain gorillas, which cannot survive in captivity. The naturalist's admiration for the animals and the people working to protect them provides a personal perspective, which complements other titles that offer more straightforward, factual presentations.—Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
