    2. Legendary anthropologist Louis Leakey believed that field study of the great apes, our closet living relatives, could yield important insights into the behavior of early hominids He recruited Jane Goodall to study chimpanzees in the wild Dian Fossey was his gorilla girl and in this memoir she recounts some of the events of the thirteen years spent with the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat Two years after publishing this book in 1983, Fossey was murdered the case still remains unsolved [...]


    3. 3.5 starsI can t even begin to imagine how Dian Fossey lived for so many years in the mountains in Rwanda I like my personal space and solitude, but that sounds a bit much, even for me I also couldn t understand how she could have so much information on several groups of gorillas she s only one woman how did she manage to observe than 4 groups of gorillas so closely with only the help of some trackers , but this was answered toward the end of the book when she talked about students and assistan [...]


    4. Although Ms Fossey keeps telling us we should not anthropomorphise the gorillas, she does so constantly which is endearing, rather than annoying, in this case and keeping in mind the chronological context of her memoir also In fact, in some ways the loose standards of field work then were humane than what happens now and to decide the ethicality of any set of standards applied to field work can only come down to individual ethics for the armchair reader today there is a set of standards and th [...]


    5. HERBACEOUS FOLIAGE Anyone who knows anything about Fossey and her research knows the highlights or lowlights, as the most memorable are also the saddest of her story This really gives a closer look at the day to day and the way Fossey worked from her own point of view It s understood straight away that she feels strongly, very, no extremely strongly She beats you over the head with what her views are, how she thinks things should be done in regards to conservation, and how they should not This b [...]


    6. From 1966 until her death in 1985 Dian Fossey studied the mountain gorillas of the Virunga mountains which extend along the borders of Zaire known today as the Democratic Republic of the Congo , Rwanda and Uganda Gorillas in the Mist is Fossey s chronicle of her time spent with the gorillas from 1966 until it was published in 1983.She began her studies in Zaire but was expelled in 1967 and spent the rest of her time in Rwanda at their national Parc des Volcans at the Karisoke Research Centre whi [...]


    7. Gorillas in the mist written by Diane Fossy was a true eye opener, Fossy did a great job at explaining all her research and clearly explain what was happening to the gorillas She explains perfectly to a sense that she is giving facts but makes it interesting I really got a true sense of how much Fossy really loves these animals.Fossy first became intrigued by gorillas in 1973 when she took her first safari to Africa Her only goal for that trip was to visit the gorillas and meet Mary and Louis Le [...]


    8. The legendary autobiographical account of Dian Fossey and her passionate quest to study and save the few remaining mountain gorillas from extinction I am glad that I read this book AFTER our own mountain gorilla trek, because I was able to connect with her commentary regarding the jungle, the local culture, and the trekking experience completely The book is a bit confusing with regards to timeline, but Fossey s strength of character and heroism clearly showed through I would recommend this to a [...]



    9. I m so fascinated and awed by this book and it s author Amazing descriptions of the environment and fantastic portraits of the gorillas The book is written with such passion and enthusiasm for all the animals in Virunga and the helping hands at the Karisoke center Such a wonderful, passionate and strong woman


    10. If there is one redeeming quality, it s that Fossey s endless fascination and love for her research research subjects most certainly shows Unfortunately, outside of that, the book is very unengaging No, not due to the subject of the book, or even due to Fossey s personal experiences she recounts in her book Both of those are, in theory, quite interesting The problem really culminates in Fossey s writing, which seems to suffer from the same affliction that plagues the writings of most natural sci [...]


    11. This book is a true classic with a tireless message of conservation The story of Dian Fossey and her work with the mountain gorillas in the Virunga Volcanic region of Rwanda is nothing short of incredible She gave her life in an effort to make us aware of the importance of conservation issues all over the world.My only problem with the book is its slightly confusing chronology For example, Fossey would write about a particular animal in one chapter as an adult but then in a later chapter, would [...]


    12. Although I read this book a long time ago, it is a must read It will capture your heart and you will see the violence that done to the gorillas You get an account of her murder as well I have never forgotten this one Definitely one of my favorites


    13. Fascinating read about Dian Fossey s experiences I couldn t put it down It really gave me a taste for my upcoming trip to Uganda and Rwanda in March to see the mountain gorillas I can t wait to come face to face with these majestic creatures.


    14. Dian Fossey delivered I believe she wrote a true account of the pioneering research of the wild gorillas while at the same time providing her own emotional account I am truly grateful that she wrote this book prior to her murder The gorillas spirits lived on through her story.


    15. A fascinating look at Dian Fossey s work with gorillas, but don t read it while you re eating like I did there s one spot where she talks about a certain bodily function of gorillas that s rather gaggish.


    16. Me acerqu a este libro gracias a la pel cula con Sigourney Weaver, me apasionaba mucho la figura que representaba de Dian Fossey, pero claro que lo que m s me gust del libro fue que me quit de lado esa imagen para poner otra m s real y verdadera, la de aquella estudiante que se apasionaba por rastrar y tuvo un maestro que le ayud a ver sus errores, aquella que cargaba con libreta, grabadora de cintas y revistas, la que aprendi el lenguaje de los gorilas y que tambi n la cient fica que sab a de s [...]


    17. Library read, inspired by the biography I read earlier this year, Woman in the Mists Farley Mowat.Take away Dian Fossey was a fierce conservationist strongly helped the mountain gorillas keep a foot old in this world Human encroachment of environments and poaching are threats to many animals When we as people take from nature we need to do so responsibly Fossey fairly beats you this point of view throughout the book I didn t find it obnoxious though, given that I m passionate about the environme [...]


    18. I was captivated by this story and by Dian s words She pulls you deep into the forest with her and speaks about the gorillas and their behavior is such a way that you feel you re actually seeing these things firsthand It was a wonderful adventure I d read In the Shadow of Man by Jane Goodall and this book is easily just as incredible and informative Highly recommended for any behavioral or animal biologist, or simply anyone who loves wildlife stories Loved it


    19. I was surprised by how readable this book was I expected something dry scientific While the science was not downplayed, the storytelling was completely engaging Clearly Fossey was passionate about the work she was doing and fell completely for the gorillas she studied You can t read this book and not see the world and the creatures with whom we share it in a different light I could almost give this book 5 stars who knows, I might come back at a future date and update


    20. Dian Fossey was an amazing woman Her efforts to enlighten the world about these beautiful creatures led to their natural preservation and protection in Rwanda I went on a Gorilla Trek in 2016 It was the most amazing experience I cannot fathom how someone could hunt one of these gorillas for pleasure I wish they were protected in other parts of Africa as well.


    21. Insightful account of her time with the mountain gorillas I suppose by nature you would have to be somewhat eccentric to spend that many years primarily with wildlife and this often comes out in her writing, but a very informative book both on the personalities of the gorillas and on the challenges of conservation in densely populated corners of Africa.


    22. Hoo boy So dry, even by science book standards It also seemed a little sketchy that she would interfere with their lives, helping protect the ones that were wounded by other gorillas and burying their dead, but hey, she s the scientist.


    23. Dian Fossey was a figure was controversial as she was inspirational, and her work set the precedent for a massive expansion into the field of animal and human psychology and sociology An informative and engaging read.


    24. Dian Fossey spent thirteen years living with the gorillas and has used experience to bring the story of misunderstandings about the great creatures to life This is a wonderful book that should inspire us all.




    25. Very interesting read on gorilla family lines in Rwanda and Zaire Great factual information and amazing research she acquired SaveTheGorillas


    26. Valentines present I finally got to read after getting another book out the way Amazing book It s mostly made up of a longitudanal case study of mountain gorillas in the national park Her earliest work was done in Zaire, but later she moved to Rwanda after civil war broke out She observed mainly 3 groups closest to the observation post she founded, Karisoke Each of these is a group of gorillas, led by a silverback, perhaps with a son or another immature male as his second in command Each group h [...]


    27. Dian Fossey along with Jane Goodall have always been 2 of my heroes This book is an outstanding and candid account of Fossey s expeditions, research and life in bringing the gorilla world into civilization without making them into caged creatures and for our human enjoyment.She had moxy to live years in wilderness with no electricity, hot water, gas, etc and she had no formal training when she started out on her love of wanting to study gorillas She had no scientific qualifications and no experi [...]
