Summary, etc.:
When Goodall first presented her discoveries about chimpanzees at a scientific conference, she was ridiculed by the chairman. She was too young, too blond, too pretty to be a serious scientist, and worse yet, she had virtually no formal scientific training. She had been a secretarial school graduate whom Leakey had sent out to study chimps only when he couldn't find anyone better qualified. And he couldn't tell her what to do in the field--nobody could--because no one before had made such an intensive and long-term study. Biographer Peterson shows how remarkable Goodall's accomplishments were, detailing not only how she revolutionized the study of primates, but how she helped set radically new standards and a new intellectual style in the study of animal behavior. And he reveals the very private quest that led to another sharp turn in her life, from scientist to activist.--From publisher description.
