Through a Window

My Thirty Years with the Chimpanzees of Gombe
Written by Jane Goodall | Narrated by Pearl Hewitt
An important and profound book from renowned primatologist Jane Goodall, who has dedicated much of her life to working with chimpanzees in Tanzania. Here, Goodall’s story is beautifully narrated, recounting the joys and tragedies among the ape community. “Engrossing” (Publishers Weekly).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

In her classic, In the Shadow of Man, Jane Goodall wrote of her first ten years at Gombe. In Through a Window she continues the story, painting a more complete and vivid portrait of our closest relatives.

On the shores of Lake Tanganyika, Gombe is a community where the principal residents are chimpanzees. Through Goodall’s eyes we watch young Figan’s relentless rise to power and old Mike’s crushing defeat. We learn how one mother rears her children to succeed and another dooms hers to failure. We witness horrifying murders, touching moments of affection, joyous births, and wrenching deaths.

As Goodall compellingly tells the story of this intimately intertwined community, we are shown human emotions stripped to their essence. In the mirror of chimpanzee life, we see ourselves reflected.
