    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 I had read Jane Goodall s memoir, Reason for Hope, just before reading Fossey s book With Goodall, I rather wished for on the chimpanzees, and less on her spiritual and political beliefs I certainly didn t have that complaint with Fossey, although in the end her book is less accessible and engaging Much of Fossey s book is too detailed and dry for a layman and reads like a scientific report complete with appendixes, bibliography and index She was less willing to speculate than Goodall about what her observations of gorillas suggested about human nature I learned far about such things as the dung of the gorilla than I ever wanted to know At the same time, the various gorillas she observed, such as Pablo, Puck and especially Digit, do come through as endearing personalities And if you re not moved by the stories of Coco and Pucker in Wild Orphans you have no beating heart.The probable reason for her murder also chillingly comes through I don t recall Goodall having had much of a problem with poaching in Tanzania Fossey s situation was quite different One of three subspecies of gorilla, the mountain gorilla inhabits a narrow band of territory consisting of six dormant volcanoes running through Zaire, Rwanda and Uganda Mountain gorillas had been discovered in 1902 and were expected to become extinct by the end of the same century When Fossey wrote the preface to her book, she estimated the population of mountain gorillas at less than 250 individuals As soon as Fossey hit the ground, she went to war with the hunters and herders using the reserve She released caught prey, cut traplines, destroyed hunting equipment, confiscated weapons and helped capture men who then received long prison sentences for poaching At one point she even kidnapped the ten year old son of a leading poacher to force him to stop A cynical part of me wondered when I read that if Fossey would have become such a beloved heroine in the Western world had she done that to a European or American child She deliberately mixed herdsthus destroying long cherished bloodlines between familial herds of cattlemen whose families had been grazing in those areas for at least four hundred years And when her dog was taken, she stole and held hostage the cattle of herders who had nothing to do with it, threatening to kill one of the cattle each day until her dog was returned That s what she admitted to After reading the book and wondering what had happened in the nearly 30 years since and to find out what she hadn t told me I went a googling I found this article from Entertainment Weekly about Hayes The Dark Romance of Dian Fossey, based on over 200 interviews The article, quoting Hayes, claimed that in pursuit of her singular goal, the protection of the endangered mountain gorilla, Fossey had shot at her enemies, kidnapped their children, whipped them about the genitals, smeared them with ape dung, killed their cattle, and burned their property Moreover, the article notes Had Fossey not been lucky enough to publicize the plight of the apes by getting her book on the best seller lists, her efforts on behalf of these magnificent creatures could have done harm than good Hardly anybody in Rwanda, for example, doubts that some apes were slaughtered less for profit than as acts of revenge against the scientist herself The good news at least is that, according to the Wiki, as of Spring 2010, the estimated total number of mountain gorillas worldwide is 790 Not out of danger but not extinct and with a population that s grown three fold in the last three decades The irony is that as the Entertainment Weekly article pointed out, it s the success of the tourism Fossey opposed that has protected the mountain apes, by making them worth infinitely to Rwandans than the value of their habitat as crop land I can t help but compare Fossey s legacy and the impression she made on me in her book to that of Jane Goodall In her opposition to animal research, Goodall didn t just hurl bricks, rhetorical or otherwise, from outside the walls She didn t abuse those on the other side of the debate She visited laboratories and sat down with researchers to convince them to work with them to better the condition of experimental animals, and she tried to find common ground with those who disagreed with her I have a very different worldview than Jane Goodall but I ended her memoir feeling for her liking, respect, even admiration With Fossey, by the end of her memoir and a little follow up, it was a very different story.

    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 assistants I couldn t believe some of the effort that she and her team would go to at times backtracking the gorilla trails to check night and day nests I didn t know gorillas built nests for evidence of illness or still births etc especially since it often seemed to involve sorting through bags of gorilla dung to find what they were after It is also amazing to read of her passion and devotion to these animals hence the ability to withstand the lonely location and basic facilities of her camp and very sad to read of people who either deliberately set traps for gorillas or set traps for other animals which the gorillas can also get caught in.

    Recently some GR friends and I were discussing naturalists Darwin and Attenborough Having discussed those two naturalists, I was better prepared to read Fossey s book Being the analytic reader I am, I made up an equation to better understand Fossey the naturalist Medical Background physical therapist Naturalist Primatologist Conservationist African Enculturation Zaire, Uganda and Rwanda Much of My Limited Understanding of Fossey Early in the book, Fossey writes of two 2 types of conservationism.Active Conservationism In active conservationism, park personnel are paid to be responsible for plant, animal, mineral, and infrastructure of park This sort of conservation used to used by US Department of Parks and Recreation I am thinking Protection and Control.Theoretical Comservationism In theoretical conservationism, limited facilities allow tourists to engage with the wildlife, become charmed, and feel encouraged to provide money to support limited conservationist practices I am thinking of Shockingky Poor Protection and Control.Indeed, the gorillas in park areas of Karisoke which were as best as possible protected by professional Western outsiders and camp support and park tracking workers from Rwanda often suffered because the owners of the park were three 3 separate countries Ziare, Uganda, and Rwanda These three 3 countries were struggling financially, politically, socially The governments and their peoples had other challenges to deal with, challenges imperative to their lives than the concern of the Web of Life.To a large extent, the conservation situation created the problems Fossey helped gorillas deal with as best she and others could As I mentioned above, Fossey was physical therapist before becoming a primatalogist and conservationist Fossey was a therapist during time when therapists had freedom to assess and address mobility problems of various sorts and also helped with wound care So Fossey was able to assist conduct medical and autospy exams Sometimes Fossey was able to assess or even rarely directly address medical situations, such as wounds A few times young rescue gorillas were in camp and were allowed to run around with the other camp animals to be encouraged and nutured by them Truly Impressive Fossey helped a female child gorilla to return to free living.So why 4 Stars and not 5 The writing style bothers me A large lack of organization Repeatedly Fossey backs and forths in her dates that I have to work harder to understand the happenings Once I was at a loss as to what a proper name meant I looked in the index not included The work is important to primates and to humanity s cousins that I have lowered my rating only some Although not a medical person, I was able to look over some of the diagrams in the appendix materials and understand big picture ideas.Important and well enough done.

    I ve never been a big fan of primates, so I went into this book with low expectations, reading it solely because it allowed me to make progress on a challenge I wanted to finish before the end of the year But Dian Fossey was a big fan of primates, especially the mountain gorillas of East Africa, and her passion and enthusiasm for some of our closest living relatives created a fascinating, often heartbreaking, book that I enjoyed despite myself.Fossey was clearly a meticulous researcher, not to mention strong willed and, if I correctly detected what was between the lines, somewhat abrasive, especially if she saw you as an obstacle to her No 1 passion studying and protecting mountain gorillas Unfortunately for Fossey and definitely so for the gorillas there were a host of obstacles, almost all of them caused by poaching and encroaching.Overall, this was a clear and engaging dive into a world I d never really known existed Fossey writes with a matter of fact prose that nevertheless draws the reader into caring for individual gorillas like Beethoven, Digit, Uncle Bert and Old Goat Which makes the overall feel of the work all the tragic I don t think it s spoiling anything to say that in the struggle for survival between endangered species and human negligence, obstinance and cruelty, humans all too often come out on top That s usually the case in Gorillas in the Mist as well, and Fossey does not spare us the details nor should she Eventually, it seems likely work like hers will be the only way to bring back these creatures after they recede into the mists forever.

    I enjoyed both the Nat Geo documentary and the film with Sigourney Weaver about Dian Fossey but her own story and the story of the gorillas based on her interactions with them is even interesting.Written before her murder somewhat eclipsed her story, it offers such detailed tales of each of the gorilla groups lives that you almost forget that Dian Fossey was sitting and observing these groups for years on end to put these dramatic narratives together I recently adopted a baby gorilla called Kundurwanda from Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website I m so glad to see that her gruelling conservation work is still paying off and that there are still people dedicated to continuing her legacy.

    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 that is what has to be followed regardless of whether you are pro or anti intervention if the subject being studied is in crisis etc etc Personally I would find it as hard to walk away and leave an animal to die naturally as I would find it with a human Which I often have to do cos we re not allowed to kill suffering humans and them are the rules Which would bring us to the vexed question of euthanasia if I allowed my mind to pursue this gambit so I had better not let it I don t agree with suicide euthanasia personally but I also don t believe I have the right to make that decision for anyone else so you get to make your own rules, baby..and if that s not a cute piece of sophistical squirming, I can t do any better.la la la I have recently realised that I love this sort of memoir Throughout reading my mind kept drifting to the later issues and conflicts in Rwanda and I wonder how the gorillas are I guess Cologne Zoo has changed it s ethical standards since the issue related herein I certainly hope so The I see of how animals are treated the less I believe that, with all the box ticking that goes on now, anything has changed for the better If you have men who will exclude any of God s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men Francis of Assisi

    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 book is largely personal and intimate in regards to individual gorillas and that is where it succeeds best She endears the reader to the gorillas as creatures both mysterious and yet so very like us in many ways Fossey also provides a lot of solidly scientific information, but it s the points of endearment and contention that are the most compelling in her writing Chronologically this book is a mess There seems to be little regard for the explanation of when Normally I don t mind a little play with the chronology, but I do mind when it is not purposeful I also left with a feeling that Dian had a hard time seeing past herself Through her writing I got the sense that she was not the most receptive to anything except that which supported the conclusions that she had already reached though perhaps this is a bit unfair Dian Fossey was a champion for the gorillas and in the end it would seem that her passion in their conservation most likely was the cause for her own murder This was of coarse not part of the book, but I feel it necessary to pay tribute at this point to the passionate woman that gave everything to her cause.

    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 which Fossey established Fossey states one of the greatest drawbacks of the Virungas is that it is shared by three countries each of which has problems far urgent than the protection of wild animals Gorillas in the Mist provides not just a wonderful picture and insight into the lives of the gorillas, but into the mind of this rare woman who worked with them Dian was an uncompromising forest who fought like a tiger about what she believed in and held others who she worked with to the same high standard She typed her field notes on a daily basis and expected the others who she worked with to do the same.Dian had a great love of animals not just her gorillas She kept chickens for their eggs but treated them like pets with one of them roosting on the carriage of her typewriter as she typed When her pet dog is kidnapped by poachers she rustles cattle belonging to villagers and holds them hostage until her dog is returned When a gorilla is found dead she perfomers and autopsy and then buries them in the gorilla graveyard at the Karisoke research center and this is where she eventually rests She dedicated the book to some of her favorite gorillas who had died.Dian was in a fierce and unrelenting war with poachers She galvanized the Africans who worked with her to go onregular missions to eliminate and destroy the traps set by poachers, not just those which would harm gorillas but would harm any animal Despite this, many of the gorillas she loved met their fate at the hands of poachers.Dian was a truly amazing fearless woman who did much to raise awareness and an understanding of the mountain gorillas.With the gift of hindsight and knowledge of the eventual fate of Dian and the three countries which border the Virungas, the book provides a sad and eerie journey.

    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 Leakey After she returned to the USA all she wanted was to go back to Africa and study the gorillas in a way the Jane Goodall did with the chimpanzees After giving away everything she owned, she started her 13 year study of gorillas in the Virungas Mountains.I never knew how gorillas lived their daily life and how the survive It s not easy to survive but somehow they do On a daily basis gorillas have to deal with hazords such a poachers If caught in the traps the animals are almost guaranteed a horrible death The poachers almost took over the forest and all the animals Thanks to all of Fossy efforts the gorillas didn t go extinct The gorillas also had to deal with the natural hazords such as the search for food, water and a safe place to sleep.Fossy not only loved the gorillas but would help any animal she came in contact with At one of the later times in her research she came in contact with a little injured monkey This monkey became a close companion of Fossys until its death I have a true respect Fossy because of her commitment to helping all the animals in the Virungas Mountains.There were many times in this book that I would stop and think of how Fossy was able to interact with the gorillas and make them feel comfortable in her presence I love the fact that she never wanted harm to an animal I am a true believer in not harming any animals and I could relate to Fossy She loved these animals so much that all gorillas she came in contact with an own personal name.
