Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jane Goodall

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

In an outstanding performance rich in pride, compassion, and vulnerability, Jane Goodall introduces the listener to the world of the Gombe chimpanzees she studied for 25 years. Her observations of the chimps alone could fill volumes, but a listener gets so much more from this superbly written biography. With an even pace, an expert abridgment, and perfectly selected music dividing each chapter, this work comes to life courtesy of Goodall's own voice, flouting the convention that authors should not read their own books. As much a spiritual recounting of her amazing travels as it is a push for all of us to treat the earth with more respect and sense, Goodall's memoir conveys her belief that there is hope for all the creatures on earth. H.L.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
