Anne Fields gives voice to a life of great depth in this memoir by primatologist Jane Goodall, who has spent her life studying her beloved chimpanzees in the Gombe Reserve in Tanzania. Goodall's account, in Fields's capable hands, is a divulging of the forces that created a remarkable life. Sensitively articulated and often poetic, Fields lends an appropriate mixture of stoicism and wonder, as well as a balance of presence and absence. The unabridged format allows for each swell of emotion in this chronicle of discovery, which ties together Goodall's finely threaded philosophies. The result is a book that in every way speaks to its title. M.L. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
