About the Author

Jo Sandin has written about one of the largest zoos in the Midwestern United States - the Milwaukee County Zoo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - during a span of 45 years. After graduation from the University of Texas at Austin in 1962, she moved to Wisconsin to work as a reporter for The Milwaukee Journal, the state's largest newspaper. The Zoo was an early assignment. When she retired in 2002 from The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (renamed after a merger in 1995), the award-winning environmental reporter had written about everything from agriculture to zebra mussels, with a few presidential campaigns and blizzards thrown in for good measure. She counted Zoo stories among her favorites. Now she enjoys taking her grandchildren to the Zoo.

By Kathryn R. Barbour on June 4, 2008
(2007) Jo Sandin profiles bonobos in the Milwaukee zoo, where several families live and can be followed through generations. Extensive reading list at end also lists many organizations devoted to keeping this unique and truly significant species with us forever. Great pictures.

I purchased this book to give me an insight into the bonobos at Milwaukee County Zoo prior to my visit there. I was not disappointed, the book provides accounts from the people working closest with the bonobos, the keepers and those working in the field to ensure their survival. It is a very personable account of the individuals you can find at the zoo, full off the highs and lows involved when dealing with a complex and highly intelligent species such as the bonobo. I have spent much time observing the bonobos at the zoo since reading this book and can say that they are every bit as special and emotional as they are portrayed.

I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the origins of empathy or an interest in primates in general. Its not a long book but it is compelling reading and most people will get something from it.

Unfortunately, this book is more like a glorified pamphlet. For the money, I was expecting some nice glossy pages with color photographs. I would have paid maybe $6.00 for it had I seen it in a store. It's got some nice stories and pictures but the high price is misleading. It's not a $22.00 book. (especially in paperback)
