Description: In the late 1950s, naturalist George B. Schaller began the first study of gorillas in the wild, high in the Virunga volcanoes on the Zaire-Rwanda-Uganda border. The Year of the Gorilla is Schaller's poignant and stirring account of his travels along misty mountain trails, dodging the branches of otherworldly plants to sit beside a gorilla in the wild or watch a gorilla family frolic at close range.

Schaller and his wife Kay spent two years among the gorillas and learned that, far from being the vicious apes of film and fiction, these great animals form close-knit societies of caring mothers and protective fathers watching over playful young.

Gorillas then were endangered, but not so severely threatened as they are today by the continuing wars that rage through their once-remote mountains and the cruel snares of desperate poachers. Schaller's is a classic adventure story of gorilla society as it once was -- and as it some day may be again, if people can live at peace with each other and with the remarkable animals in their midst.
