Through a Window

Through a Window

I hope you’ll allow me an indulgence into one of my childhood favorites: the study of primates. I spent hours obsessing over man’s incredible relatives, particularly the study of chimpanzees. No better instructor can be found than Jane Goodall, a marvel of a woman if there ever was one. In Through A Window Goodall chronicles her thirty years spent with the chimpanzees in Tanzania. At times harrowing, at times heartbreaking, Through A Window is a phenomenal read.
