Summary

"Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference," wrote Jane Goodall in her 2003 story collection, With Love. In his new book, The Ghosts of Gombe, Goodall's official biographer, Dale Peterson, captures that same sentiment, examining the individuals who made her research possible and recounting the mysterious death of a woman at the Gombe Stream Research Centre in 1969.
