Summary
In A Forest in the Clouds, John Fowler takes us into the world of Karisoke Research Center, the remote mountain gorilla camp of Dr. Dian Fossey, a few years prior to her gruesome murder. Drawn to the adventure and promise of learning the science of studying mountain gorillas amid the beauty of Central Africa's cloud forest, Fowler soon learns the cold harsh realities of life inside Fossey's enclave ten thousand feet up in the Virunga Volcanoes
Summary
A zoologist's portrait of Dr. Dian Fossey's remarkable mountain gorilla camp documents the story of the controversial unraveling of the Rwandan facility after Fossey's murder and the author's contributions to tracking mountain gorillas through hostile terrain, confronting aggressive silverbacks and rehabilitating orphaned baby gorillas
