Description

Be inspired by the lives of trailblazers past and present in this fun and factual biography series! How did Jane Goodall become the world's leading chimpanzee expert? Having dreamed of studying animals in their natural habitat since she was little, she jumped at the first opportunity to set sail for Africa and observe primates - even though many people were against the idea of a young woman living among wild creatures, so far from home. Find out what led this animal-loving trailblazer to dedicate her life to primatology and conservation, and share her amazing discoveries with the world. TRAILBLAZERS biographies are packed with little-known trivia, fascinating facts and lively illustrations.
