Psychologist Anne Russon has spent more than fifteen years studying the behaviour of our closest relatives, who share an astonishing 97 per cent of our DNA. Orangutans are the only great apes found in Asia, and are by nature elusive and solitary. Although they inhabit inaccessible tropical rainforests, they are now near extinction, surviving in freedom only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra. In this lavishly illustrated book, Anne Russon provides a first-hand account of the lives of these incredible creatures - a rare, insider's look at the threatened world of orangutans.

'This lavishly illustrated work (some 100 color photos), both scientific and passionate, offers a vivid and intimate look at the world of this remarkable ape: its behavior and habitat, and the heroic efforts to save it from extinction at the hands of its human cousins.' -Globe and Mail
