Fourteen years ago, a group of chimpanzees were rescued from a research lab and sent to a sanctuary where they could be taken care of. These great apes will spend the rest of their lives in the sanctuary located in the Canadian wilderness. After years of cruelty and deprivation, these chimps will learn to trust humans again and how to trust each other. Primatologist and author Andrew Westoll lived and worked at Fauna for one remarkable summer and writes about his experiences with them, as they learn to bond together as a group. Moving and disturbing, we come to realize just how close we are to the great apes and how the pain we inflict upon them in the name of research produces usable results. This is a book you will remember long after you finish it.
