Light Shining Through the Mist

A Photobiography of Dian Fossey

Description

World-famous zoologist Dian Fossey is remembered for her inspiring work studying the mountain gorillas of central Africa's isolated Virunga Mountains. Her tireless devotion to understanding-and actively protecting-these shy and gentle primates introduced them to an admiring public and promoted values of conservation in the African nations they inhabit. In 1966, Dian Fossey left home for Africa to conduct field research on mountain gorillas. It was her second trip to Africa, but it wouldn't be her last. Ascending through nearly impenetrable mountain jungles, finally she came face-to-face with the majestic creatures she sought. Most people believed gorillas were savage giants, but as Dian's observations proved, that reputation was undeserved. Dian would remain a close friend to the gorillas until her tragic murder in 1985, presumably at the hands of poachers. Narrator Matthew Greer's enthralling reading presents an arresting portrait of Dian Fossey-a strong woman whose life was spent championing a remarkable endangered species. "This fascinating biography will surely snare the attention of young animal lovers and aspiring anthropologists."-Publishers Weekly
