Animal Kingdom

Following Fifi My Adventures Among Wild Chimpanzees
by John Crocker, MD

I was so fortunate to meet the author of this mesmerizing book at the Jimmy Carter Library this past summer in Atlanta. John Crocker studied chimpanzees with Jane Goodall and later became a family physician in Seattle. Many of his observations he made in the wild he later applied to parenting and heart felt patient advice. It’s a beautiful unassuming account of a young man spending days in the tree tops of Gombe, taking notes and observing our closest relatives. I loved this book! – Debbie Devore
