Abstract:

Goodall continues her story of the study of chimpanzees and their society in the Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania. Goodall's first 10 years at Gombe is covered in the celebrated In the Shadow of Man (1972). 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.
