    Legendary anthropologist Louis Leakey believed that field study of the great apes our closet living relatives could yield important insights into the behavior of early hominids He recruited Jane Goodall to study chimpanzees in the wild Dian Fossey was his gorilla girl and in this memoir she recounts some of the events of the thirteen years spent with the mountain gorillas in their natural habitat Two years after publishing this book in 1983 Fossey was murdered the case still remains unsolved I had read Jane Goodall's memoir Reason for Hope just before reading Fossey's book With Goodall I rather wished for on the chimpanzees and less on her spiritual and political beliefs I certainly didn't have that complaint with Fossey although in the end her book is less accessible and engaging Much of Fossey's book is too detailed and dry for a layman and reads like a scientific report complete with appendixes bibliography and index She was less willing to speculate than Goodall about what her observations of gorillas suggested about human nature I learned far about such things as the dung of the gorilla than I ever wanted to know At the same time the various gorillas she observed such as Pablo Puck and especially Digit do come through as endearing personalities And if you're not moved by the stories of Coco and Pucker in Wild Orphans you have no beating heartThe probable reason for her murder also chillingly comes through I don't recall Goodall having had much of a problem with poaching in Tanzania Fossey's situation was uite different One of three subspecies of gorilla the mountain gorilla inhabits a narrow band of territory consisting of six dormant volcanoes running through Zaire Rwanda and Uganda Mountain gorillas had been discovered in 1902 and were expected to become extinct by the end of the same century When Fossey wrote the preface to her book she estimated the population of mountain gorillas at less than 250 individuals As soon as Fossey hit the ground she went to war with the hunters and herders using the reserve She released caught prey cut traplines destroyed hunting euipment confiscated weapons and helped capture men who then received long prison sentences for poaching At one point she even kidnapped the ten year old son of a leading poacher to force him to stop A cynical part of me wondered when I read that if Fossey would have become such a beloved heroine in the Western world had she done that to a European or American child She deliberately mixed herdsthus destroying long cherished bloodlines between familial herds of cattlemen whose families had been grazing in those areas for at least four hundred years And when her dog was taken she stole and held hostage the cattle of herders who had nothing to do with it threatening to kill one of the cattle each day until her dog was returned That's what she admitted to After reading the book and wondering what had happened in the nearly 30 years since and to find out what she hadn't told me I went a googling I found this article from Entertainment Weekly about Hayes' The Dark Romance of Dian Fossey based on over 200 interviews The article uoting Hayes claimed that in pursuit of her singular goal the protection of the endangered mountain gorilla Fossey had shot at her enemies kidnapped their children whipped them about the genitals smeared them with ape dung killed their cattle and burned their property Moreover the article notes Had Fossey not been lucky enough to publicize the plight of the apes by getting her book on the best seller lists her efforts on behalf of these magnificent creatures could have done harm than good Hardly anybody in Rwanda for example doubts that some apes were slaughtered less for profit than as acts of revenge against the scientist herself The good news at least is that according to the Wiki as of Spring 2010 the estimated total number of mountain gorillas worldwide is 790 Not out of danger but not extinct and with a population that's grown three fold in the last three decades The irony is that as the Entertainment Weekly article pointed out it's the success of the tourism Fossey opposed that has protected the mountain apes by making them worth infinitely to Rwandans than the value of their habitat as crop landI can't help but compare Fossey's legacy and the impression she made on me in her book to that of Jane Goodall In her opposition to animal research Goodall didn't just hurl bricks rhetorical or otherwise from outside the walls She didn't abuse those on the other side of the debate She visited laboratories and sat down with researchers to convince them to work with them to better the condition of experimental animals and she tried to find common ground with those who disagreed with her I have a very different worldview than Jane Goodall but I ended her memoir feeling for her liking respect even admiration With Fossey by the end of her memoir and a little follow up it was a very different story

    Gorillas in the Mist tells of the thirteen years Dian Fossey spent studying mountain gorillas in their natural habitat—in the Parc des Virungas located in the predominantly dormant volcano range at the border of Rwanda Uganda and Zaire With the support of British paleoanthropologist Professor Louis Leakey 1903 1972 who had arranged studies of chimpanzees by Jane Goodall and orangutans by Birutė Galdikas Fossey established the Karisoki Research Center At the start this was simply two tents The year was 1967 She had studied Swahili but with the camp located in Rwanda the language spoken was Kinwywanda With the help of native Rwandans difficulties were surmounted Here between the three dormant volcanoes Visoke and Karisimbi in Rwanda and Mikeno in Zaire she tracked counted observed and lived beside free ranging gorillas They grew accustomed to her To her they became intimate close friends Poachers became her nemesis It was with their spears and arrows their snares and nooses her beloved gorillas were ensnared cruelly disfigured and hurt Often gruesomely killed High ups at European zoos and tourists became her enemies too Conservation became her cause célèbreThe book begins by providing relevant background information for example on the Hutu Tutsi conflict the status of the Batwa people Belgian and German colonialism in the area the native belief in the supernatural and the words used for implements of daily use foods and natural phenomena With background information provided Fossey turns attention to the gorillas themselves She speaks of their physical attributes their eating bedding sexual and social behavior Births and deaths Mothering skills Infanticide The formation of the gorilla family groups and the relationships that develop between individuals Every night she documented with a good old fashioned typewriter what she had seen experienced and ruminated upon during the day At the book’s core lies a scientific study She gathers statistics and draws conclusions The drawing of genealogical family trees was an essential part of the study Fingerprints identify people but nose prints are a better means by which to identify gorillas Who would have known? Body shapes facial characteristics and behavioral patterns are passed from generation to generation too Who begot whom while simple for Fossey to keep track of is not easy for a reader to keep straight There are many gorillas mentioned Comprehensive in its scope and with similar situations arising the information becomes repetitiveThe author throws in both humorous and heart wrenching incidents Often she deprecatingly points out and laughs at her own errors She speaks of her pets—chickens yes chickens and her dog Cindy Of a blue monkey and two infant gorillas she nursed back to health only to be forced view spoilerto relinuish them to the Cologne Zoo hide spoiler

    35 starsI can’t even begin to imagine how Dian Fossey lived for so many years in the mountains in Rwanda I like my personal space and solitude but that sounds a bit much even for me I also couldn’t understand how she could have so much information on several groups of gorillas she’s only one woman how did she manage to observe than 4 groups of gorillas so closely with only the help of some trackers? but this was answered toward the end of the book when she talked about students and assistants I couldn't believe some of the effort that she and her team would go to at times backtracking the gorilla trails to check night and day nests I didn't know gorillas built nests for evidence of illness or still births etc especially since it often seemed to involve sorting through bags of gorilla dung to find what they were afterIt is also amazing to read of her passion and devotion to these animals hence the ability to withstand the lonely location and basic facilities of her camp and very sad to read of people who either deliberately set traps for gorillas or set traps for other animals which the gorillas can also get caught in

    I enjoyed both the Nat Geo documentary and the film with Sigourney Weaver about Dian Fossey but her own story and the story of the gorillas based on her interactions with them is even interestingWritten before her murder somewhat eclipsed her story it offers such detailed tales of each of the gorilla groups lives that you almost forget that Dian Fossey was sitting and observing these groups for years on end to put these dramatic narratives together I recently “adopted” a baby gorilla called Kundurwanda from Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund website I’m so glad to see that her gruelling conservation work is still paying off and that there are still people dedicated to continuing her legacy

    Recently some GR friends and I were discussing naturalists Darwin and Attenborough Having discussed those two naturalists I was better prepared to read Fossey's book Being the analytic reader I am I made up an euation to better understand Fossey the naturalistMedical Background physical therapist Naturalist Primatologist Conservationist African Enculturation Zaire Uganda and Rwanda Much of My Limited Understanding of Fossey 🤷‍♀️Early in the book Fossey writes of two 2 types of conservationismActive Conservationism In active conservationism park personnel are paid to be responsible for plant animal mineral and infrastructure of park This sort of conservation used to used by US Department of Parks and Recreation I am thinking Protection and ControlTheoretical Comservationism In theoretical conservationism limited facilities allow tourists to engage with the wildlife become charmed and feel encouraged to provide money to support limited conservationist practices I am thinking of Shockingky Poor Protection and ControlIndeed the gorillas in park areas of Karisoke which were as best as possible protected by professional Western outsiders and camp support and park tracking workers from Rwanda often suffered because the owners of the park were three 3 separate countries Ziare Uganda and Rwanda These three 3 countries were struggling financially politically socially The governments and their peoples had other challenges to deal with challenges imperative to their lives than the concern of the Web of LifeTo a large extent the conservation situation created the problems Fossey helped gorillas deal with as best she and others could As I mentioned above Fossey was physical therapist before becoming a primatalogist and conservationist Fossey was a therapist during time when therapists had freedom to assess and address mobility problems of various sorts and also helped with wound care So Fossey was able to assistconduct medical and autospy exams Sometimes Fossey was able to assess or even rarely directly address medical situations such as wounds A few times young rescue gorillas were in camp and were allowed to run around with the other camp animals to be encouraged and nutured by them Truly Impressive Fossey helped a female child gorilla to return to free livingSo why 4 Stars and not 5 The writing style bothers me A large lack of organization Repeatedly Fossey backs and forths in her dates that I have to work harder to understand the happenings Once I was at a loss as to what a proper name meant I looked in the index not included The work is important to primates and to humanity's cousins that I have lowered my rating only some Although not a medical person I was able to look over some of the diagrams in the appendix materials and understand big picture ideasImportant and well enough done

    I've never been a big fan of primates so I went into this book with low expectations reading it solely because it allowed me to make progress on a challenge I wanted to finish before the end of the year But Dian Fossey was a big fan of primates especially the mountain gorillas of East Africa and her passion and enthusiasm for some of our closest living relatives created a fascinating often heartbreaking book that I enjoyed despite myselfFossey was clearly a meticulous researcher not to mention strong willed and if I correctly detected what was between the lines somewhat abrasive especially if she saw you as an obstacle to her No 1 passion studying and protecting mountain gorillas Unfortunately for Fossey – and definitely so for the gorillas – there were a host of obstacles almost all of them caused by poaching and encroachingOverall this was a clear and engaging dive into a world I'd never really known existed Fossey writes with a matter of fact prose that nevertheless draws the reader into caring for individual gorillas like Beethoven Digit Uncle Bert and Old Goat Which makes the overall feel of the work all the tragic I don't think it's spoiling anything to say that in the struggle for survival between endangered species and human negligence obstinance and cruelty humans all too often come out on top That's usually the case in Gorillas in the Mist as well and Fossey does not spare us the details – nor should she Eventually it seems likely work like hers will be the only way to bring back these creatures after they recede into the mists forever

    Between the Majestic Mountains and the Shadow of Death The book Gorillas in the Mist is built around the establishment of the Karisoke Research Center the ecology of the Virungas and a massive amount of study on Gorilla behavior It provides a different view of Rwanda rather than the human genocides The writing is refreshingly authentic and the organization of the book and the revelation of the story has a logical flow and seuence The reader may expect conservation politics but will not find it here That is possibly what sets this book apart as being the ‘gold standard’ for ecology writing in my mind Dian Fossey cared about animals She was genuine Her goal was to protect the gorillas she loved There is nothing here about political party Within the kaleidoscope of life and death she did a beautiful job of maintaining and projecting a positive viewpoint of hope for the future while actively working to bring that future to passThat day's contact was also meaningful in that Puck had retained his grudge against me for a two hour period I considered this remarkable because of the length of time involved and wondered just how long gorillas who live in a group structure maintain their resentment toward one another after disputes or minor differences Fossey tells of an aged buffalo couple near death They took refuge near the shelter of the Karisoke Refuge Center since he was almost totally blind and they could no longer flee from poachers The male survived longer than his mate until his death too came naturally Early one morning the woodman found the old buffalo's body lying in a small grassy hollow next to Camp Creek under the towering silhouettes of Mts Karisimbi and Mikeno I could not imagine a fitting spot for Mzee's final resting place The serenity of the surroundings matched the dignity of the bull's character Although he had lived in the shadow of poachers he had managed to defy them in deathWhen Fossey was first offered the ‘Gorilla girl’ job she was so excited that she willingly gave her dogs to friends knowing she would never see them again I thought this was indicative of how serious she was about the job Most people who love dogs would find that difficult for any job But she soon had a collection of ‘pets’ at the Research Center She had a hen and rooster for eggs that shared her tent Later after she moved from the tent to the cabin they built she was given another dog that helped her nurse sick animals There was no way that I could explain to dogs friends or parents my compelling need to return to Africa to launch a long term study of the gorillasWalter was no ordinary rooster Every morning much like a dog he followed me into the field several hundred feet from camp Every afternoon he would come running to meet me with greeting clucks At night he roosted on the carriage of my typewriter never fluttering a feather while being shuttled back and forth across the keyboardBut Dian Fossey’s work and the center took on a life of its own beyond what was taking place there in the reserve I think that she had a huge effect on the conservation of the wildlife even when the rangers were not enforcing anti poaching laws They had their own agendas and often corruption worked against the actual conservation effort At one point the Park department head asked Dian to help him capture a gorilla to give to a German ambassador who wanted a pair for a zoo He was willing to give her a vehicle and money in exchange Yeah right Of course she said no And she explained the likelihood of mass slaughter when attempting to capture a gorilla because the group would fight to the death to protect their own Later they had to call her to save the babies they had captured anyways The babies were in bad shape after the slaughter of their group She planned to release them into the wild as part of another group but after they were recovered the Park manager demanded them back to deliver them to Germany He insisted that they would just capture if she didn’t hand them over This changed over the course of her work and later in the book the new director allowed her to release a baby saved from poachers back into a group successfully This was a delicate affair given the xenophobia of groups with young of their own The Rwandese park Director in Kigali had been informed of Bonne Annee's arrival as well as of my intention to introduce her into a free living group once she recovered from the trauma of capture and poacher confinement I was pleased with the acceptance of my decision The enforcement of legislation both in Rwanda and abroad had come a long way since 1969 when Coco and Pucker were exploited as pawns traded between Rwanda and GermanyIt was because of her painful compromises that I felt like she was as diplomatic as possible in the circumstances She provided money and uniforms and supplies to pay the park rangers to patrol for poachers This did little good and the rangers just sold the boots in town and often took bribes from poachers So she used her research money to hire Africans to form citizen patrols The black night skies faded into those of a gray misted dawn when I realized that Iike Ian I did not want Digit to have died in vain I decided to launch the Digit Fund to support active conservation of gorillas the money only to be used to expand antipoacher foot patrols within the park This would involve recruitment training outfitting and remuneration of Africans willing to work long tedious hours cutting down traplines and confiscating poacher weapons such as spears bows and arrowsThe reader is instantly immersed in the lives of numerous gorilla ‘characters’ They win your heart as you experience the realities of their lives and deaths The book is filled with beautiful photos of these gorillas Some of them grace the inside cover front and back in a ‘line up’ of faces that portray the iconic nature of their personalities You can see why a couple generations have grown to love this book But through the details of their lives and the many photos the reader discovers photos of one in particular Digit who becomes famous through her photos before he is slaughtered by poachers Within the book there are photos of Digit at every age and you feel like you have lost someone when he dies You feel the tragedy of his life being erased The way things are revealed is part of the treasure of the story At one point I thought I was seeing a mistake where she kept referring to one ape differently in different places I had to stop and google for mistakes in the book but couldn’t find any mentioned Then I found where someone mentioned this particular ape and the secret that explains the confusion which wouldn’t be revealed until later in the story So after spoiling that for myself I won’t spoil it for you Just know that she toys with the reader a bit sometimes but all will be explained in due time The Research Center is situated in the saddle region between three of the volcanoes that are shared by the three countries of Rwanda Uganda and what was then called Zaire Within this region she describes the geography and the different vegetation zones The saddle Vernonia nettle bamboo brush Giant Lobelia and Afro Alpine zones She usually uses any scientific type vocabulary with the meaning of the word couched within the same sentence in a very down to earth type of writing So it is easy to understand She marches a variety of animals; bushbuck buffalo elephants duikers into the story one by one creating a simple backdrop of characters around the gorillas of the misted mountains She describes the key trees that the gorillas live from the Hagenia 70’ the Hypericum 40 60’ and the Vernonia 20 30’ along with the parasitical plant Laranthus which is a member of the mistletoe family I felt like you were given just enough information to feel like you’ve learned something without being overwhelmed Poppy was Group 5's 'little darling' There was something winsome and appealing about her She could do no wrong Unlike Pablo she was not interested in alien objects within her environment Discarded bird nests held a special fascination for her They could be beaten against her body or on the ground until nothing but shreds remained She also enjoyed laboriously plucking nests apart strand by strand for the same result Poppy occasionally liked to perch daintily on the laps of observers as if wanting to be cuddled Usually whenever she 'honored' myself or students with her attention we received pig grunts or threatening stares from Beethoven Effie and other group members More often than not Beethoven would leave his nesting site to come to Poppy and gently butt her away from us with his massive head The younger group members Puck Tuck uince and Pablo were eually concerned when Poppy had settled with observers and would often retrieve her to carry back to their midst Such group supervision of Poppy was in marked contrast to the animals' lack of interest whenever the adventurous Pablo was interacting with humansFossey even introduces a couple of the key players like Mutarutkwa a cattleman and Munyarukiko a poacher So even though it is non fiction it is written with the flair of a storyteller And in the telling she gives a variety of interesting facts about the country of Rwanda and the mountain gorilla population It was interesting comparing these stats to today’s numbers after I finished the book You can see that her work has made a big difference Here is a link to a good video on YoutubeThe seasonal return of Group 5 to the edge of the park boundary always interests the villagers They gather together yelling Ngagi Ngagi 'Gorilla Gorilla' On this day Group 5 after a brief stare left Jambo Bluff to carry on with their feeding and the Africans returned to their hoeing However when I climbed onto the bluff to follow the group a new outbreak of screams and shouts came from the people below 'Nyiramachabelli Nyiraachabelli' they cried meaning 'The old lady who lives in the forest without a man' I enjoyed the abundance of information about the mountain gorillas themselves They spend 40% of their day resting 30% feeding and 30% traveling feeding And they are uite family group oriented creatures They are diurnal and build a different nest every night They also have a day nest for a mid day siesta Though the young try to build their own nests they usually end up in their Mama’s nest Nests built by immatures are often flimsy clusters of leaves until practice enables the construction of a solid serviceable nest The youngest animal observed consistently building and sleeping within his own night nest was thirty four months old Ordinarily a youngster remains sleeping in the mother's nest until the female again gives birth Overall the reader will learn a lot about gorilla behavior like the paternal and maternal instinct group interactions encounters between different groups mating the roles and treatment of the females the caring for children and how they deal with poachers and life and death The book includes a few family trees of the different groups followed and a good map as well as the countless photos I read this in what appears to be a good used hardback of the first edition It is certainly a book worth re reading in the future I highly recommend this for anyone who loves nature and animals This was my stop in Rwanda on my Journey Around the World for 2019 It is a uick read because I read it almost straight through having finished it a couple days ago Of course I couldn’t stop looking at the pictures after that long enough to write this review until now My next stop is Burundi

    Although Ms Fossey keeps telling us we should not anthropomorphise the gorillas she does so constantly which is endearing rather than annoying in this case and keeping in mind the chronological context of her memoir also In fact in some ways the loose standards of field work then were humane than what happens now and to decide the ethicality of any set of standards applied to field work can only come down to individual ethics for the armchair reader; today there is a set of standards and that is what has to be followed regardless of whether you are pro or anti intervention if the subject being studied is in crisis etc etc Personally I would find it as hard to walk away and leave an animal to die 'naturally' as I would find it with a human Which I often have to do cos we're not allowed to kill suffering humans and them are the rules Which would bring us to the vexed uestion of euthanasia if I allowed my mind to pursue this gambit so I had better not let it I don't agree with suicideeuthanasia personally but I also don't believe I have the right to make that decision for anyone else so you get to make your own rules babyand if that's not a cute piece of sophistical suirming I can't do any betterla la laI have recently realised that I love this sort of memoir Throughout reading my mind kept drifting to the later issues and conflicts in Rwanda and I wonder how the gorillas are I guess Cologne Zoo has changed it's ethical standards since the issue related herein I certainly hope so The I see of how animals are treated the less I believe that with all the box ticking that goes on now anything has changed for the better “If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men” ― Francis of Assisi

    In 1967 Dian Fossey went on her very first trip to Africa There were two main objectives for her trip one to go to the Congo later Zaire and see the mountain gorillas of the Virunga volcanic peaks; two to meet the famous Dr Louis Leakey That trip was the first step towards Fossey’s setting out to observe mountain gorillas and to subseuently set up the Karisoke Research Center in the Virungas Her story is documented here in Gorillas in the Mist This memoir is split into 12 chapters not uite chronological on that later and each roughly devoted to one or of the groups of gorillas that inhabit the study area covered by Karisoke Fossey explains how she came to set up this organization how it’s evolved over the years what are the challenges and obstacles it faces what are its triumphs and what it—as well as the countries Rwanda Zaire and Uganda that form the Virungas area—needs to do in order to save mountain gorillas from extinction And of course there is what forms the bulk of the book her observations of the gorillas Fossey goes deep into detail about almost everything she saw and documented regarding the gorillas of Virunga Each group their dynamics their relationships she gave names to every individual gorilla even on occasion having to resort to a name like Beetsme when she couldn’t initially figure out the sex of a gorilla Her descriptions are amazingly absorbing and enlightening and she balances her objective very scientific self excellently with the humane person who is very depressed when a gorilla dies or who is tempted to reach out and hug a baby gorilla which shows affection a temptation she invariably resists even when the gorillas have become ‘habituated’ because it might cause behavioural problems in the gorilla She talks about the problems of poaching and corruption of misguided campaigns to take mountain gorillas off to zoos even when there’s no chance of a breeding programme in place She also discusses with a great deal of sensitivity which arises out of seeing the situation up close of the problem of choosing between conservation and a burgeoning poverty stricken population in Rwanda the main home of the mountain gorillaI found this book utterly engrossing and informative I learnt a lot about gorillas and their habitat and all of it written in a very readable often humorous always empathetic style The family trees at the beginning of the book each depicting one group of gorillas studied by Karisoke are a handy reference And the plethora of photos are the icing on the cake I had only one grouse because Gorillas in the Mist isn’t written in a completely chronological fashion there are often puzzling gaps that get resolved only much later in the narrative For instance shortly after she’s described her first gorilla sighting Fossey goes on to talk of making physical contact with gorillas having a baby gorilla touch her and so on The leap here—from a tentative contact with a species that is very leery of humans to a trusting physical contact—comes suddenly and without progression leaving one wondering exactly how that came about Similarly Fossey goes from talking about being alone with only a few African assistants and trackers to help to talking about students observing gorillas Again with no connect between how the situation changed In both cases the progression is explained but many many pages ahead Barring that though which I think a good editor could have attended to this is a superb book And it’s heartening to know that in large part thanks to Dian Fossey’s and Karisoke’s work the mountain gorilla population has gone up from less than 300 when the book was written to almost 1000 at present

    After each display the gorillas would look at us uizzically as if trying to determine the effect of their show It was their individuality combined with the shyness of their behavior that remained the most captivating impression of this first encounter with the greatest of the great apes I left Kabara with reluctance but with never a doubt that I would somehow return to learn about the gorillas of the mist mountains
