About the Author:

ANITA SILVEY is the author of 100 Best Books for Children and 500 Great Books for Teens and has devoted more than 40 years promoting books that turn young people—and their families—into readers. To do this she has appeared frequently on NPR, The Today Show, 60 Minutes, and radio programs in the United States and Canada to talk about books for children and teenagers. She is the former publisher of children's books for Houghton Mifflin Co. and served as editor-in-chief of Horn Book magazine for 11 years. As Publisher's Weekly has said, "It would be hard to find a more authoritative voice than Anita Silvey." Anita writes the very popular Children's Book-a-Day Almanac that appears online. She also creates narrative nonfiction for children - The Plant Hunters, I'll Pass for Your Comrade, Henry Knox: Bookseller, Soldier, and Patriot, and an upcoming biography about singer-activist Pete Seeger.

Review:

"Silvey (The Plant Hunters) adeptly chronicles the life of Goodall from her childhood fascination with animal behavior to her groundbreaking field research of chimpanzees in Africa and her work to preserve endangered animals’ habitats. Goodall’s brief foreword offers a persuasive call-to-action for readers to do their part to save the natural world, and Silvey’s clear, engaging narrative moves briskly through Goodall’s career.... Incorporating sidebars, bursts, maps, illustrations, and other images, the book’s handsome design makes for easy, enjoyable navigation." - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

"This accessible account of [Jane Goodall's] life (with a foreword by Goodall herself) emphasizes the qualities that will likely resonate with young readers: her intelligence, sense of adventure, curiosity, and love of animals... Silvey accompanies her main narrative with informative text boxes and vivid photographs that are integral to understanding the places, people, and animals in Goodall’s life—including the chimpanzees she spent years observing. " - The Horn Book Magazine; www.hbook.com

“Adventurers and outdoor lovers will identify with the life and work of Jane Goodall, compellingly presented in “Untamed,” which is filled with full color photographs, illustrations, maps, and fun nature facts.” - The Boston Globe

"Untamed: The Wild Life of Jane Goodallby Anita Silvey is the fascinating story of the childhood and career of the famed scientist. With a foreword by Jane Goodall, a great many photographs of her early years and field work studying chimpanzees, a format that draws the reader in, and a carefully researched and written narrative, this is a book that will both educate and entertain young readers." - About.com
