Summary

From the time she was a girl, Jane Goodall dreamed of a life spent working with animals. Finally she had her wish. When she was 26 years old, she ventured into the forests of Africa to observe chimpanzees in the wild. On her expeditions she braved the dangers with leopards and lions in the African bush. And she got to know an amazing group of wild chimpanzees - intelligent animals whose lives, in work and play and family relationships, bear a surprising resemblance to our own.

Love Jane, message & superbly crafted soundscapes!

One of the best Audio Books I have ever heard! I just loved being immersed in Jane's beautiful narration, accompanied by the amazing soundscapes-especially all of the authentic nature and animal sounds and the deep and meaningful message of this book. I will listen to it again and again. And, it will be at the top of my gifting list for friends and family for this giving season and beyond. It reminds me of an old fashioned radio show, its like being right there with Jane hearing and experiencing everything she is describing. I feel that the message of hope and Jane's exquisite role modeling and inspiration are so important for our world at this time.

A 9 year olds point of view

In all, this book has taught me that I can be curious brave and daring. I like that Jane Goodall told us her story in her own words.

Great Story, too many sound effects

I enjoyed listening to Jane Goodall tell the story of her life and all of her adventures. My one criticism is that there are too many sound effects throughout, and sometimes they are just too loud, especially when one is wearing an earbud!

My kids were mezmerized

It was such a beautiful story. The best part was that the Narrator was Jane Goodall herself. She has such a calm, soothing reading voice. Myself and my kids could not stop listening. It is her life story as well as a lot of conservation topics. This is a great book for kids and adults

She has THE best audiobooks

Jane Goodall voice is so soothing and her stories are so inspiring. This book is a perfect short story to understand where she comes from and why she is so passionate about peace and coexistence with animals.
