Dr. Rick Quinn is a veterinarian who became fascinated with the great apes (Gorillas, Chimpanzees, Bonobos and Orangutangs) to the point where he spent seven years crossing Africa and Indonesia to photograph them. This tribute is part memoir/part nature book and he delves into the issues of why they are endangered today. The photographs in this book are amazing as he was able to get up close to these animals in their natural habitat. An informative and enjoyable read.
