|Publisher||STEWART, TABORI AND CHANG|
Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2010. Oversized 262 x 224 mm. FIRST EDITION, first printing. Like new condition throughout including crisp bright unclipped illustrated dust jacket. Signed on title page without inscription (a rarity for this iconic conservationist/researcher/author.) A great deal has happened at the Gombe Reserve in Tanzania since a young secretary named Jane Goodall arrived a half century ago. "Most recently, endeavors at the Gombe field site have included landmark research related to AIDS progression; establishing programs to improve sanitation, health care, and education in neighboring Tanzanian communities; and partnering with local people to pursue reforestation initiatives. The accomplishments of the past 10 years alone have given the Jane Goodall Institute a great deal to celebrate. In honor of the field site's 50th anniversary, STC is proud to release Jane Goodall: 50 Years at Gombe, a compelling pictorial tribute to Dr. Goodall's life, her studies of chimpanzee behavior, and her unflagging efforts to motivate people to make this world a better place." Spectacular photographs and Dame Goodall's text retraces five decades of compassion and discovery. Needless to say, an absolutely unmatched gift for anyone interested in wildlife, conservation, and the history's most accomplished and heralded animal behaviorist. 144 pages.
