"Dr. Jane Goodall's revolutionary study of chimpanzees in Tanzania's Gombe preserve forever altered the very, definition of "humanity." Now, in a poignant and insightful memoir, Jane Goodall explores her extraordinary life and personal spiritual odyssey, with observations as profound as the knowledge she has brought back from the forest." "It has been a life blessed with faith, resolve, and purpose, though not without its crises. Jane Goodall endured the horrors of the London blitz and World War II, postwar hardships, vicious rumors and "establishment" assaults on the integrity of her work, a terrorist attack and hostage taking in Africa, and her husband's slow, agonizing death. But throughout, her religious convictions, although tested, have helped her survive - and Jane Goodall's pursuit of science has enhanced, not eroded, her belief in God." "In this book she candidly shares her life - talking of the love and support of her mother, her son, her late husband, of friends and strangers - as well as the Gombe chimpanzees she introduced to the world nearly forty years ago. And she gives us convincing reasons why we can and must open ourselves to the saints within each of us."--BOOK JACKET.… (més)

I appreciate Jane Goodall as a person. Her work and her life have certainly been remarkable and inspirational. I like the idea that humans are on this earth to fulfill their spiritual and ethical development as a species. There is a lot of food for thought in this book from Jane's own experience. It makes a case for our collective responsibility to mother earth and all creatures great and small.

That said, there are a few things that were mentioned here that annoyed me a little, and I would like to think that they are the fault of the people who abridged this edition. The full description of the crime of the holocaust and the horrors of Auschwitz / Birkenau stands jarringly against a small paragraph about Palestinian children proclaiming their wish to kill Jews and become suicide bombers. The "bad guys" here are all nicely compartmentalized, they are Germans, Arabs and African. Meanwhile Petrol companies like BP are trying to do something for the environment, give me a break.
I do not want to belittle a good book but these two observations made it lose some credibility in my eyes (3 1/2 stars) instead of a full 4. ( )

I really love optimists; I think they're some of the best people. When you combine optimism with realism, I think you get the very best. That's what Jane Goodall gives us with this book. ( )

I listened to the audio format of this book and had a pleasurable experience. I felt as if the balance between science, memoir, and reflection on spiritual matters had a fairly good balance. This wasn't a grand experience filled with relation and growth for me as a reader, but it was a good look into life, emotion, and feeling of someone I respect very much. Readers who know something of Goodall's life probably won't be surprised by the events mentioned here, but will likely enjoy the glimpse into her life events and the emotions those things brought to her life.

I enjoyed this book. Of course, I had heard of Jane Goodall and her foundation but didn't realize that her passion is driven from a spiritual base. The story of her life is amazing to me, especially as I learned that she really just ventured out to Africa to fulfill a dream with no real training to do what she hoped to do.

I was challenged by the way she weaves together her spiritual understanding of creation with her scientific understanding of evolution ... not just physical, but also social and moral.

The purpose of her book can be summed up by a quote toward the end where she says … "every human, every unique being, plays some role in the shaping of progress, though only some get into history books. Throughout every second of every day there is change abroad in the world, change due to the impact of mind on mind; teacher and pupil, parent and child, world leader and citizen, writer or actor and the general public. Each one of us carries seeds for change. Seeds that need nurturing to realize their potential." (p. 203) ( )

Herein lies the real hope for our future--we are moving toward the ultimate destiny of our species--a state of compassion and love. (p. 251)
...the uniquely human ability to talk about that which is not present, share events of the distant past, plan for the far-off future, and, most important, discuss ideas, bouncing them back and forth to share the accumulated wisdom of an entire group...to aritculate feelings of awe, feelings that would lead to religious belief... (p.188)
Each one of us matters, has a role to play, and makes a difference. Each one of us must take responsibility for our own lives, and above all, show respect and love for living things around us, especially each other. (p.266-7)
How sad it would be...if we humans ultimately were to lose all sense of mystery, all sense of awe. If our left brains were utterly to dominate the right so that logic and reason triumphed over intuition and alienated us absolutely from our innermost being, from our hearts, our souls. (p.177)
...it honestly didn't matter how we humans got to be the way we are, whether evolution or special creation was responsible. What mattered and mattered desperately was our future development...were we going to find ways to live in greater harmony with each other and with the natural world? (p.179)
