A chronicle of an experiment designed to transform the way humans think about animals and humans profiles a young chimpanzee, brought up with a large human family and taught to use sign language proficiently, until the funding for the study ended and he spent the next two decades exiled from his "family" and shuttled in and out of various facilities, including a medical lab. 30,000 first printing.


Very Good - This is a preloved book, but it is in pristine condition. There should be no yellowing, no foxing, and no writings of any kind on the pages. This book is good as new — lucky you!
