Primates: The Fearless Science of Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Biruté Galdikas - Maris Wicks, Jim Ottaviani

Wonderful and quick read about the endurance of three determined women in their respected fields. I know of Jane Goodall's work but was more familiar with Dian Fossey from seeing Michael Apted's Gorillas in the Mist (1988) and didn't know anything about Birute Galdikas. With such a short book and not knowing much information about them previously, the story did feel a little rushed in terms of each one's timeline but they were intertwined well enough. I didn't know they had all met each other. I would've liked more facts about each of their journeys but having read the afterword, that wasn't the intent and there are plenty of references to books and other media on each woman. (less)
