Interweaving firsthand experiences in the field with premier scientists and environmentalists, Jane Goodall presents a hopeful look at the animals once on the verge of extinction that are now coming back. This book is an illuminating look at how, through the grace of nature and the dedicated work of scientists and environmentalists, we can and are actually saving animal species. Through Goodall's signature impassioned narrative, we read fascinating accounts of how the course of fate has been reversed for these animals. Each chapter illustrates the crucial need to continue saving habitats and the species that live there, as well as to educate new generations to be better stewards than previous generations have been. Goodall's views on the hopeful future of endangered animals and their co-existence with human culture is bolstered by studies and accounts she has uncovered during her ceaseless travels as a heroine fighting on behalf of the well-being of our planet.

'Goodall is no Pollyanna about species reclamation - she acknowledges that there have been more losses than gains - but these accounts of conservation success are inspirational' - Publishers Weekly
