Gorillas: the Gentle Giants
"Gorillas the Gentle Giants is a stunning hard-back book, with 132 pages of amazing photography and fascinating text. The authors use beautiful and close up photography, alongside informative text, to take us through the history, features and habits of these amazing animals. They also discuss their fight for survival, faced with the problems of poaching, disease, deforestation, and the effect of armed conflict."
