An action packed account of the three greatest primatologists of the last century: Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey and Birute Galdikas. These three ground breaking researchers were all students of the great Louis Leakey, and each made profound contributions to primatology--and to our own understanding of ourselves. Tackling Goodall, Fossey and Galdikas in turn, and covering the highlights of their respective careers, Primates is an accessible, entertaining and informative look at the field of primatology and at the lives of three of the most remarkable women scientists of the twentieth century.
