Dawn Prince Hughes has written a her story in such a beautiful style.
This book is a must for everybody remotely interested in autism or primates, but I should wish it to reach as many readers, especially anthropologists!
Some of the other unique characteristics of this book involve how she views the world.
I particularly liked Prince-Hughes early emotions toward gorilla and how she
was able to develop herself….
