Summary
After three years in the equatorial wilderness of West Africa, mid-19th-century explorer Paul Du Chaillu returned to London with the first known specimens of the African gorilla ever seen there. His discovery was quickly swept into the scientific community's heated debate over Darwin's recently revealed theory of evolution. The public was fascinated and horrified in turn by the strangely human remains -- and Chaillu's mysterious personal past fueled intensive speculation. This fascinating history brings to life the terrors of both jungle explorarion and snarky Victorian academic society with equal verve. - Description by Kimberly S. Burton
