Jane Goodall's autobiographical letters chronicles her daily living experiences with chimpanzees in Africa. The studies performed by Goodall are exposed throughout her correspondence with her family, friend's and colleagues including the National Geographic magazine.
The book progresses into the birth and upbringing of Jane's son in East Africa along with her husband Hugo.
This is Goodall's second volume book that recorded her most valued research on the behavior of chimpanzees. She witnessed robbery, murder, incest, and assault, kidnapping, rape, war with the chimpanzee himself or herself. What disturbed her was how similar this behavior was to humans along with the fact that she also witnessed love, grooming, loyalty, infatuation, tenderness and care amongst the chimp groups. As the years went on, Goodall was with her second husband and son in a plane crash that straighten her backbone right up after their miraculous survival and landing.
