Now in paperback, the full story of Dian Fossey's life with the mountain gorillas of Africa is told through her own previously unpublished letters, published in association with the Gorilla Organization with a foreword by Jane Goodall For 18 years, Diane Fossey lived among the mountain gorillas of central Africa, dedicating all her energy to protecting them. She struggled against poachers, official opposition, ill health, personal tragedy, and the isolation of her surroundings with unstinting determination. Through the pages of National Geographic magazine and her book, Gorillas in the Mist, she focused the world's attention on the plight of the great apes. In December 1985, Diane was murdered by an unknown attacker in her cabin. Here, her story is told through the letters she wrote to her friends and family, set in context by a compelling narrative. These letters provide a unique and intimate portrait of an extraordinary woman together with dramatic photographs by Bob Campbell, who worked closely with Diane for several years.

About the Author:
Camilla de la Bédoyère is the author of several nature titles for children, including Action Files: Sharks and Ultimate Guide: Animals. Dr. Jane Goodall is an anthropologist famous for her 45-year study of chimpanzees in Tanzania and the bestselling author of such titles as Hope for Animals and Their World, My Life with the Chimpanzees, and Reason for Hope. Employed by National Geographic, Bob Campbell spent nearly four years making a visual journal of Dian Fossey's work, eventually becoming accepted into the gorillas' group, which enabled him to capture unique images.
Review:
"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."  —Booklist starred review
