Hardcover, 304 pages, March 2011

Compellingly written by the woman the New York Times exclaims has "the spirit of a female Indiana Jones," this utterly entertaining page-turner tells the incredible story of the NFL cheerleader turned world-renowned primatologist. Starting with her very sheltered childhood (her parents would not allow her to join the Girl Scouts because they thought it was too dangerous) up to her death-defying adventures around the globe and landmark discovery of a new species of lemur, Mireya Mayor takes readers on a sometimes hair-raising, frequently humorous, always wild journey through her life. From first page to last, the charismatic author demonstrates her unrelenting determination, incredible sense of adventure, and, above all, her fierce love of animals.
