A photographer shares a rare glimpse of mountain gorillas in the wild — and inspires readers to help protect them.
Powerful but shy, the African mountain gorilla struggles for survival in the rainforests of Uganda's national parks. Follow wildlife photographer Richard Sobol on an arduous journey to these hidden habitats and take a hushed, close-up look at the gentle giants as they nibble on leaves for their morning meal. Striking photographs of the little-seen ritual remind us of the wonders of this dwindling species, while a first-person narrative describes the photographer's journey — and tells of efforts being made to preserve these magnificent creatures.
