Gorillas in the Mist

A Remarkable Story of Thirteen Years Spent Living with the Greatest of the Great Apes

Dian Fossey´s classic account of four gorilla families; the basis for the major movie starring Sigourney Weaver

For thirteen years Dian Fossey lived and worked with Uncle Bert, Flossie, Beethoven, Pantsy and Digit in the remote rain forests of the volcanic Virunga Mountains in Africa, establishing an unprecedented relationship with these shy and affectionate beasts.

In her base camp, 10,000 feet above sea-level, she struggled daily with rain, loneliness and the ever-constant threat of poachers who slaughtered her beloved gorillas with horrifying ferocity. African adventure, personal quest and scientific study, Gorillas in the Mist is a unique and intimate glimpse into a vanishing world and a vanishing species.

Portrait
Dr Dian Fossey was the world authority on the endangered mountain gorilla. As founder and coordinator of the Karisoke Research Center, Dr Fossey spent thirteen years in the remote rain forests of the volcanic Virunga Mountains. Working from a base camp ten thousand feet above sea level, she struggled with agoraphobia on forty-five degree slopes, torrential rains, hail and fog, foot-deep mud, poachers and revolution. She went to the USA in 1980 as a visiting associate professor of Cornell University, New York. Her memoir, GORILLAS IN THE MIST, was first published in 1983, and adapted as a film starring Sigourney Weaver in 1988. Dr Fossey was murdered in Rwanda in December 1985.
