About the Author:
Bob Campbell (photographer) first went to Karisoke in 1968. Employed by National Geographic he spent nearly four years making a visual journal of Dian Fossey's work. After years of gradual habituation, the gorillas finally accepted him into their group, enabling him to capture the unique images presented in this book.

Camilla de la B�doy�re (author) has lived and taught in Kenya, and has written books on natural history, examining life on Earth and the ethical questions posed by our relationship with its other inhabitants.

From Booklist:
*Starred Review* It's been more than 20 years since the publication of Gorillas in the Mist, Dian Fossey's indelible account of her adventures among the mountain gorillas of the Virguna volcanoes of Rwanda--and since her unsolved murder--and her story remains as compelling as ever. One of Louis Leakey's "Trimates," along with orangutan expert Birute Galdikas and chimpanzee specialist Jane Goodall, who authored this riveting volume's foreword, Fossey not only pioneered the scientific study of a magnificent animal, she also imperiled herself by confronting the poachers invading the great apes' nature reserve. A fresh perspective on Fossey's complex personality, profound devotion to mountain gorillas, and world-changing achievements is forged in a dynamic combination of Bob Campbell's stunning and intimate photographs, journalist and nature writer de la Bedoyere's nimble and moving biography, and Fossey's own colorful and, by turns, frank and dissembling letters to family and friends, vigorous correspondence never before published. This poignant assemblage reveals both the intense joy and immense suffering Fossey experienced during her 18-year sojourn among Rwanda's mountain gorillas, whose descendents, in spite of all the horrors that have transpired, live on in their misty, and vigilantly protected, rain forests.
