With the insatiable curiosity and conversational prose that have made her a bestselling author, Goodall--along with Cincinnati Zoo Director Thane Maynard--shares fascinating survival stories about the American crocodile, the California condor, the black-footed ferret and more--all formerly endangered species and species once on the verge of extinction whose populations are now being regenerated. Interweaving her own first-hand experiences with the research of premier scientists, Goodall illuminates the heroic efforts of dedicated environmentalists and the truly critical need to protect the habitats of these beloved species.

Take an in depth look into some of the success stories of conservation. The history, conservation efforts, and Jane's own personal experience of each endangered animal allow you to see how important these animals are, and how much effort and dedication it takes for people to save them. Unlike many other books on the topic, this one has a general positive feel throughout.

I always feel more hopeful after reading Jane G's take on things.
