Everything that Goodall writes becomes, by virtue of scientific import, an instant classic. In her book In the shadow of man she wrote of her first ten years at Gombe, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, where the principal residents (other than herself) are chimpanzees. In this equally remarkable volume she brings the story up to the present, further completing her portrait of this animal community. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
