Virunga: The Passion of Dian Fossey (1987; renamed Gorillas in the Mist, 2009). The New Founde Land (1989). Like many lonely children Dian loved animals and took comfort from their undemanding acceptance of her; yet she was not permitted any pets of her own except for a goldfish, upon which she lavished the affection that had few other outlets. The death of the fish left her desolate. I cried for a week when I found him floating belly up in the bowl in my room. The ladies in the local post office are beside themselves.

Gorillas in the Mist is a 1988 American drama film directed by Michael Apted and starring Sigourney Weaver as the naturalist Dian Fossey. It tells the true story of her work in Rwanda with mountain gorillas and was nominated for five Academy Awards.

A collection of previously unpublished letters written by Dian Fossey captures her fearless spirit, outspoken activism, and the trials, setbacks, and joys of the eighteen years of her life that she dedicated to the study and preservation of the mountain gorilla.
I was a research assistant at Karisoke Research Center in 1974 and knew Dian Fossey. The photos are wonderful. I have not seen so many photos before of Dian and the gorillas, especially Digit. Dian took several pictures of me with Digit on my last day with the gorillas in January 1975, It is difficult to find pictures of Dian's dog Cindy and her rescued monkey Kima. They were in my cabin constantly and Dian had me care for them when she was away. So glad I bought this book. It has brought back some very bittersweet memories.
Fast & Great
love it
About twenty years ago I did visit the mountain gorillas in what was, at that tome, called Zaire (today this is Congo). It was a flabbergasting experience. I always wanted to go back but.......still nowadays, the troubles in that part of N-E Congo are still going on. A few months ago I did notice a trip going to the gorillas from the Uganda-site, and I took the opportunity with both hands. At Travellers Rest in Kisoro I did see a copy of the concerning book. Waw, I wanted to have this very beautiful book too because "I do love them too, those magnificent animals"
There is no doubt that is a beautiful, well written book. But I was expecting a LOT more letters - instead, what I got was scant letters with much biographical filler. As much as I enjoyed this book, I was very disappointed at how many letters were included and how edited they apparently were (the reader got the chance to see original letters from time to time). I'm surprised none of the other reviewers mentioned this ... but then again my main interest is women's letters.

So these three stars reflect misrepresentation, not my opinion of the actual content. I would just be repeating what other reviewers have said if I went into why I liked this book so much. I am hoping that Farley Mowat's biography will provide more letters.
This was a fantastically interesting read. I loved being able to get inside the mind of the woman behind Karisoke and the Virunga mountain gorillas in Rwanda. After reading her book and watching the movie, this book was the next logical step--and there is more to discover it would seem! I've just found out that a number of her colleagues (including Bob Campbell, her infamous lover) have written books about their version of the events that took place in the Parc des Volcans. I must say I am quite curious and might be tempted to pick up their accounts in the near future.

I'm not sure why the life and story of Dian Fossey holds such a fascination for me, but I feel inexplicably drawn into the circumstances that lead to saving the mountain gorilla from extinction. For anyone out there with a passing interest in animals, conservation, or even just a good real-life adventure of someone overcoming innumerable obstacles, this book is a must-read.
The words "No One Loved Gorillas More" are the words put on Dian Fossey's tombstone after she was murdered. This book is her eulogy. It is composed of letters she wrote between 1966 and her death two days after Christmas, 1985. The letters are combined with more than a hundred color photographs of she and a reverential story of her life by journalist Camilla de la Bedoyere.

Dian spent most of her adult life in the study of the mountain gorilla. She loved those animals more than life herself, and it was her dedicated attempts to preserve them and protect their future that lead to her unexplained killing.

Her legacy lives on. Even with the tremendous upheavals in Rwanda, with the killing of a million or more people, the numbers of wild gorillas is growing. It can only be hoped that this book will help more people to understand what Dian stood and died for.
