Summary
Eugene Mallabar, eminent chimpanzee researcher, is ready to publish his life's work when Hope Clearwater discovers that the northern group of chimpanzees is waging war on the smaller southern group at Grosso Arvore National Park. As the practices of infanticide and cannibalism aren't accepted chimpanzee behavior, none of the other researchers at the station, especially Mallabar, want to believe her. In fact, someone seems to be sabotaging her research. Her tent burns and her notes are lost; and a dead baby chimp is identified as a baby baboon by another researcher--the body destroyed before Hope can study it again. Hope fights to prove her theory in beautiful, revolution-torn Africa. Her work, if documented, will shake the foundations of the study of chimpanzee behavior. As Hope studies the chimpanzees, the author reveals her earlier ecological work and the reasons behind the disintegration of her marriage. Readers may also enjoy books by Steven Voien and Louis Charbonneau. (Description by: Sue O'Brien) --
