From the time Jane Goodall was a girl, she dreamed of a life spent working with animals. Her earliest fascination with animals inspired her to hide in a henhouse so that she could watch hens lay their eggs. After years of study, at 23, Jane Goodall made her first voyage to Africa and began her determined steps, one after another, to achieve her goal of studying animals by living among them. On her expeditions she braved the dangers of the jungle and survived encounters with leopards and lions in the African bush. Her detailed observations of many kinds of animals, but especially generations of chimpanzee families, reveal a world few human beings ever come to know. Her story covers the proud achievements of a lifetime, including raising her son in the Africa she loves.

In My Life with the Chimpanzees, Jane Goodall shares the remarkable journey which took her from her childhood in London and Bournemouth, England, to the realization of her dream in the wilds of Gombe, Tanzania. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this book when I was little and found it to be great. It is at around an advanced 6th grade reading level. As I grew up I continued reading about primates, however the books I read slowly became harder and harder. I will never forget this, my first primate book :). "

    " This author is a remarkable lady and very unique. I saw her years ago when she came and spoke at our college. The work she has done with the chimpanzees is very interesting. "
