In December 1985 Dian Fossey's life came to a violent end when an unknown assailant split her skull open with her own bush-knife in the remote Parc des Volcans in Rwanda, 19 years after her arrival in Africa to study the rare mountain gorillas. She had established an international reputation, and had been accepted by the gorillas and become their champion. She had also made so many enemies that the Rwandan police scarcely knew where to begin their investigations. Fossey sacrificed her desire for children and family, risked her academic career, and endangered her health - and her life - by dedicating herself to the preservation of an endangered species. Her story, told in this book, is one of drama, ambition, heartbreak and brutality.
