Editorial Reviews

Review

The survival of mountain gorillas depends wholly on our knowledge, interest, and compassion, forever. This book, with its vivid photographs, brings us up-to-date on the plight and the promise of mountain gorilla conservation.

(George Schaller, Wildlife Conservation Society)

This book is a 'must read' for anyone wishing to delve below the surface on the subject of mountain gorilla conservation. It is simply the best treatise of the subject I have ever seen―and is beautifully punctuated with striking photographs. Eckhart and Lanjouw have given us the next best thing to being there!

(Mark Nolting, President of the Africa Adventure Company and author of Africa's Top Wildlife Countries)

Every visit I ever had with mountain gorillas ended in tears. My emotions exploded as I drove away with my back to the silhouette of the Virunga volcanoes. I was always given more by the gorillas, the trackers, and researchers than I could ever find a way to give back with my photographs. Gene Eckhart and Annette Lanjouw's new book brings me home again, reminding us all of the world treasure that exists so tenuously in this one spot on our fragile planet.

(Michael "Nick" Nichols, National Geographic Magazine)

Gorgeous photography by Gene Eckhart makes this book a must-have.

(Ian Paulsen Bird Booker Report)

Eckhart and Lanjouw target a larger audience of laypeople who would never read advanced scientific publications on mountain gorillas, but who are curious about their natural history and status. The superb color photography, unmatched in other books, will certainly appeal to general readers.

(Choice)

An important bibliography and original color photography complete this book.

(Mammalia)

A superb and up to date account of the mountain gorilla. The pictures alone are worth the price of admission!! The text is excellent and detailed but very readable for all. I have read a lot of books on the mountain gorilla and I have enjoyed them all, but I must say, that this is one of the best.

This is an incredible book about Gorillas and their habitat. The book is full of interesting information, but the stunning pictures make it a must have. Anyone with any interest in Gorillas should have this book in their library.

Format: Hardcover
There are plenty of text heavy books on the market about African wildlife, and many with pretty pictures that give a sense of place without any real information about the wildlife or the challenges faced by the continent's animals.

This book manages to combine both. It has pertinent information about conservation but is not all grim reading, enlivened by Gene Eckhart's superb photography.

If you are heading to Central Africa to see the gorillas, this is the book you simply must have.

Format: Hardcover
In February of this year I was "up the mountain" visiting the Gorillas and it was absolutely wonderful, so I was wanting a book that I could relate to in text and pictures and this is it. An amazing book. I can show parts of this book to people and say, "I was there"!! The photography is brilliant. Thank you.
