Jane Goodall is one of the planet's most revered scientists. Because of National Geographic coverage of her studies of chimpanzees in Tanzania in the 1960s and later, and because of her global campaign for humane treatment of all animals, she is known by adults and children worldwide. Many want read about her and her continuing work. Because some biographies of Goodall are over 500 pages, requiring a commitment of many days for most readers, I am glad to find Jane Goodall: 50 Years at Gombe. At 144 pages and filled with many color photos, it highlights Goodall's life and explains her most important work with both economy and enthusiasm. Readers are introduced to the most prominent of the chimpanzees that she studied and are given contacts for contributing to Goodall's causes. It is a good book for both libraries and fan collections.
Another good way to learn about Goodall's work is to view the DVD Jane's Journey.
