In the Shadow of Man

Jane Goodall's classic account of primate research provides an impressively detailed and absorbing account of the early years of her field study of, and adventures with, chimpanzees in Tanzania, Africa. It is a landmark for everyone to enjoy. 'Jane Goodall's work has already passed into the legends of culture...and represents one of the Western world's great scientific achievements ...Chimps, as our closest genealogical cousins, hold more of our common evolutionary heritage than any other species can. Chimpanzees are not so much the shadow of man as our mirror, only slightly blurred by the mists of time' Stephen Jay Gould
