One magical summer, primatologist and author Andrew Westoll lived and worked at the Fauna Sanctuary, a refuge for thirteen chimpanzees rescued from a medical research lab. The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary is Westoll''s vivid account of his adventures as a volunteer caregiver in the chimphouse and a heart-wrenching biography of its residents. Through Westoll''s eyes, we witness the chimps'' remarkable recovery first-hand. Simple things like establishing friendships, nurturing alliances, grooming one another and playing games of tickle-chase are all poignant testament to the capacity of these animals to heal—and to learn how to be chimps again.

ANDREW WESTOLL is an award-winning narrative journalist and internationally published author. A former biologist and primatologist, his first book,The Riverbones, is a travel memoir set in the jungles of Suriname, where he once lived as a monkey researcher. Andrew now lives and writes in Toronto. Visit him atwww.andrewwestoll.com.
