About Letters from the Mist: Dian Fossey: 'No One Loved Gorillas More':

The full story of Dian Fossey's life with the mountain gorillas of Africa, told through her own personal letters with stunning pictures by renowned wildlife photographer Bob Campbell. For 18 years, Dian Fossey lived among the mountain gorillas of central Africa, dedicating all her energy to protecting them. She struggled against poachers, official opposition, ill-health, personal tragedy and the isolation of her surroundings with unstinting determination. Through the pages of National Geographic magazine and her book Gorillas in the Mist she focused the world's attention on the plight of the great apes. In December, 1985, Dian was murdered by an unknown attacker in her cabin. Here, her story is told through the letters she wrote to her friends and family, set in context by a compelling narrative by Camilla de la Bedoyere. These letters provide a unique and intimate portrait of an extraordinary woman and bring to life the rewards and setbacks of her years with the creatures who she called 'the greatest of the great apes'. These impressive yet shy animals are dramatically captured in photographs by Bob Campbell, who worked closely with Dian for several years. Published in association with The Gorilla Organization.
