One woman's illuminating journey into the heart of the wild

About the Author

Joanna Greenfield talked a scientist into giving her a chimpanzee research site between her junior and senior years of college, in the Impenetrable Forest of Uganda. She lives in the mountains in America now, and is working on a pilot project to provide towns with a blueprint for going sustainable with renewable energy, recycling, public transportation, local farming, and more.


"Beautifully written with vivid descriptions of close encounters with African animals in their natural habitat. I loved the passages of scientific and philosophical concepts that were interspersed with graphic descriptions of physical hardships and being close to nature."--Temple Grandin, Author of Animals Makes Us Human and Animals in Translation
"Written in dazzling prose, The Lion's Eye gives us a way of seeing as big as the vault of African sky tracing the curvature of the earth. Greenfield's illuminating tale is densely woven with a physical courage that transcends the safer worlds of safari travel and even conventional wildlife biology. She stalks the mountain trails with a fierce determination and gives us language that explodes out onto the plain like the expanding consciousness of the first hominoids leaving the forest for the savanna. It is the blinding white light of the near-death encounter. I haven't read a book like this in a very long time."--Doug Peacock, Author of In the Presence of Grizzlies and Walking it Off: A Veteran's Chronicle of War and Wilderness
