In December 1985, Dr. Dian Fossey's body was discovered at Karisoke, the research station she had established high in the Virunga mountains of Africa, and where she dedicated 18 years of her life to the study and preservation of the endangered mountain gorilla. In that time Dian had struggled against ill health, opposition from the authorities, poachers, personal tragedy, and the isolation of Karisoke's remote location. Her strength of will, her outspoken nature, and her all-consuming passion for the gorillas earned her renown and respect and helped bring the plight of these magnificent creatures and her groundbreaking observations on their behavior to the world's attention. No One Loved Gorillas More is a powerful reminder of what Dian was fighting for. These imposing, intelligent yet shy creatures are dramatically captured in photographs by Bob Campbell, who worked closely with Dian for several years. And compelling letters written by Dian herself bring to life her fearless spirit, and the trials, setbacks, and joys of her years spent at Karisoke. Published in association with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and enhanced with details of the gorilla families she loved so much, this heartfelt, lively, and dramatic book tells Dian's story in her own words, providing a unique perspective of a unique woman. Foreword by Dr. Jane Goodall. Photographs by Bob Campbell.
