Description
(New York Times Notable Book of the Year) When Louis Leakey first heard about Jane Goodall's discovery that chimps fashion and use tools, he sent her a telegram: "Now we must redefine tool, redefine man, or accept chimpanzees as human." But when Goodall presented her discoveries at a scientific conference, she was ridiculed as too young, too blond, too pretty to be a serious scientist. Dale Peterson, who co-authored the New York Times Notable Book Visions of Calaban with Goodall and served as the editor of her two books of letters, here details how Jane Goodall revolutionized the study of primates, and reveals the private quest that led to a sharp turn in her life, from scientist to activist.

"Biographies of the living are tricky, but Peterson makes judicious use of sources both archival and human. Peterson vividly and significantly enriches our understanding of Goodall as a scientist, spiritual thinker, and humanist."Booklist
