"A fantastic book. . . . Anyone who cares about animals will benefit hugely from reading it." --Shaun Ellis, star of Animal Planet's "Living with the Wolfman" and author of The Man Who Lives with Wolves

Award winning adventure journalist Paul Raffaele's Among the Great Apes is the first book in over a decade--and possibly the last ever--to take its readers into the lives of our charismatic cousins the great apes in their native habitats. Raffaele, a feature writer for Smithsonian magazine, has been called "nothing less than a one-of-a-kind world treasure" by renowned author Alvin Toffler.

Paul Raffaele has done a great job writing this book! I'm really happy that I stumbled across it while browsing the shelves at the library. If you have the slightest interest in the great apes this is a definite read. It is amazing to learn about the differences in the behavior each kind of ape and how almost human they seem. Although, it is certainly sad to read how the continued civil unrest in the African countries and commercialization is causing many of the apes to face extinction.
