The Taming of the Gorillas - CAMPBELL, Bob

Minerva Press, 2000, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good+. Faint pressure marks to upper wrap. Corners slightly dog-eared. Internally bright and clean. A nice copy of a scarce book.

This is the story of what really happened in the initial years of the late Dian Fossey's field observations of the mountain gorillas in the Eastern Congo and Rwanda. It is a remarkable, sensitive account of various incidents that took place. Anyone with even a passing interest in the gorillas will know of Dian's work, but only a handful of people have ever known what actually lay behind her success. Bob Campbell was there and it was he who in fact 'broke the barrier' as it were, with these magnificent apes. This is an eyewitness account. Illustrated with B&W photographs. 221pp.
