Threatened - Eliot Schrefer

In his second book on the great apes, National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer transports us to Gabon, into the impoverished and desperate life of Luc, an orphan who escapes essential servitude through the cunning and wiles of the Prof, from Northern Africa, who dreams of becoming an African Jane Goodall. The two voyage into the nearly impenetrable Gabonese forests to study chimpanzee behavior. Thoroughly compelling and thought-provoking, Threatened (Scholastic, $17.99) gives us a glimpse of a relationship between a human and a species of ape that is humans’ closest living relative, sharing 99.8% of our DNA.  Ages 12-15.
