|"My big, small discovery in 2001. The mouse lemur of northeastern Madagascar is the world's smallest primate. If he looks a little spacey, it's due to the tranquilizer, not my squeezing."||"My little newborn monkey, Emma. It was love at first sight."||"My grin atop Mount Roraima comes from having survived the climb and near starvation. We found a spectacular landscape up there--black, forbidding, primeval."||"A seemingly magical force drew me to the edge of Guyana's spectacular Kaieteur waterfall and made me want to spread my wings and fly."|
|"Game day was the pay-off for hours of grueling cheerleading practice. Nothing beat standing on the field listening to thousands of screaming fans--or hearing the National Anthem performed."||"Leopards can be killing machines, but this one is a like a large house cat."||"Coming full circle: 1978 ...||and 2010"|
I just finished reading this book by Mireya Mayor...Wow!
I can say that she's just as nice in person as she is in the book, you really feel like you're listening to a friend tell you about the best story of her life.
Her self-confidence is matched only by her sense of adventure and you will come to admire her.
I was interested in this book about Mireya, a cheerleader who goes on to become a renowned primatologist, because of my interest in primates. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dani Maron-Oliver
