In the movies we see gorillas climb tall buildings and swat planes from the sky. But real gorillas are gentle, social animals that live together peacefully in family groups. Join renowned science writer Seymour Simon as he gets up close and personal with these fascinating mammals. His engaging narrative and nineteen riveting full-color photographs explore how gorillas gather their food and how their families live, communicate, and play in harmony. Readers will also learn about the efforts being made to protect gorillas and to safeguard their homes in central Africa, including Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda.Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children 2000--selected by Natn'l Science Tchrs Assoc. & Child.
