In My Family Tree: A Life with Chimpanzees - Sheila Siddle with Doug Cress
Came across this book while searching for books for the Around the World Challenge. The author has a chimpanzee sanctuary in Zambia, and this book tells the story of how the sanctuary began with a single chimpanzee and has grown over the years. I found it fascinating, although it is very hard for me to read about cruelty to animals, and the fact that most of the chimpanzees were victims of terrible cruelty before coming to the sanctuary was hard to read about. I'm so thankful that there are people in the world like the Siddles that help animals in need.
