"First in a planned Traveling Photographer series, this will delight armchair explorers and animal lovers." — Kirkus Reviews

Smithsonian Notable Book for Children

Powerful but shy, the African mountain gorilla struggles for survival in the rainforests of Uganda’s national parks. Through extraordinary images and a compelling text, wildlife photographer Richard Sobol leads us on an arduous journey to the gorillas’ hidden habitats and offers a hushed, close-up look at the gentle giants as they nibble on leaves for their morning meal. Striking photographs of the little-seen ritual remind readers of the wonders of this dwindling species, while a first-person narrative describes the photographer’s journey — and tells of efforts being made to preserve these magnificent creatures.
Back matter includes mountain gorilla facts, online resources, a glossary, and an afterword by Leonardo DiCaprio.
