About the Author

CHRISTOPHE BOESCH is an evolutionary biologist and the director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany. After first visiting the Ivory Coast in 1976, he returned in 1979 to begin a long-term study of the Ta forest chimpanzees. He has published many papers and a number of books, including Wild Cultures: A Comparison Between Chimpanzee and Human Cultures. Concerned about the continuing deforestation in Africa, Christophe founded the Wild Chimpanzee Foundation to fight for their survival. Hedwige, his wife, says that Christophe has an uncanny ability to predict what the chimpanzees will do when he's following them in the forest.

SANJIDA O'CONNELL earned her Ph.D. in chimpanzee intelligence and then went on to direct a number of documentaries for the BBC, as well as National Geographic and the Discovery Channel, including Demonic Ape and a three-part series on animal intelligence called Animal Minds. She has also worked as a wildlife presenter for the BBC and has had four critically acclaimed novels and three nonfiction books published. She writes on environmental issues and science for national newspapers and magazines. For her doctorate, she studied sign language, which is used to communicate with chimpanzees; now that she has a daughter, it's becoming very useful.

This was a fantastic book! I am a photographer and I loved reading about the experiences of the people making the film.
Very nice photos in book and lovely to feel as tho you are behind-the-scenes.

Worth getting in my opinion.

I read a clipping about the movie, and it mentioned this book, so I came on amazon to purchase it. The book is lovely. Large, hard-bound, stunning photographs, and really transported me into the jungle, with its descriptions of the hardships and amazements which go along with spending so much time shooting stills and video for a feature film.
