Good Intro

by Wondering on Oct 2, 2008

This book provides a very readable overview of the work, including much about their personal lives, of the three women who lived among, studied, and made ground breaking discoveries about our closest primate cousins. The bibliography is pretty thin, but there is enough, including references to the principal publications of each of these remarkable people, to provide a good start to those readers who want more.

The Trimates-a brilliant Sy Montgomery work

by KindredSpirit on May 31, 2007

This is a tender, touching, love story of epic proportions. The love and feminine worship of the Trimates by the author, Sy Montgomery is apparent and the loves both human and primate of each woman is so masterfully told by Montgomery. We can't help but feel a kinship to the three wonderful women who are celebrated in this Leakey led sisterhood of Montgomery's biographical tale of primatologists Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Berute Galdikas. Not unlike her other works, Montgomery has allowed us to follow her...NO! This time, walk along side of her throughout her journey to tell the stories of these three women scientists who spent their lives in the service of Louis Leakey until his death in 1972, and the primates they each chose to bravely live among and almost change into their respective Animagus form. Montgomery has taken three biographies and woven them poetically together like the intertwining lives they each lead, without gossip, but of obvious sincere heroine worship.
