The Watcher: Jane Goodall's Life with the Chimps
The title capturesthe essence of Jane Goodall’s life observing nature from childhood on. Goodall’s patience paid off with the trust she earned from the chimpanzees she studied. She discovered that chimps made and used tools and ate meat. Goodall wrote about her observations, but also reluctantly left Africa to educate others about the effects of deforestation and the destruction of the chimp’s habitat. “The chimpanzees were in danger of becoming extinct. They needed Jane to speak for them.” This biography will inspire budding scientists not only to be observant, but also to care about the environment.
