'A great love story - an essential read for anyone interested in the welfare of our nearest relatives' - REDMOND O'HANLON 'Heart warming and thought provoking, MY GORILLA JOURNEY is a vital, well-written autobiography which avoids any kind of self-indulgence' - AMAZON REVIEWS Helen Attwater met her husband Mark while they were working at London's Royal Festival Hall. Little did they realise then that they would soon be heading off to set up an orphanage for baby gorillas in the heart of Africa, and become embroiled in a bloody tribal power struggle...This is the story of life with fifty or more of the most endearing animals in the world, and survival through incredible adversity. It is a story of how an intimate bond can form between humans and gorillas, of compassion set against brutality, and of hope and endurance.

Reviews:
  • Doriel
Having been to Rawada and visiting the gorillas there, I found the book to be very authentic besides being a great story.

I bought this book for my husband who wants to go on safari. He hasn't put it down yet. Thanks.
  • Tejora
An excellent read. Very interesting with lots of information on gorillas as well as the struggles the husband and wife team went through setting up the gorilla orphanage.

My Gorilla Journey is an awesome book. The detail made you feel like Helen Attwater was telling you about her adventure one-on-one. This book was great for people who are interested in nature, consevation or anything like that.
