In 1986, primatologist Patricia Chapple Wright was given a seemingly impossible task: to travel to the rainforests of Madagascar and find the greater bamboo lemur, a species that hadn’t been seen in the wild for 30 years. Not only did Wright discover that the primate still existed but that it lived alongside a completely new species. What followed was a love affair with an animal and a country that continues to this day.
In this frank and enchanting sequel to High Moon Over the Amazon, Wright recounts the many challenges she faced, including separation from her daughter, a tempestuous romance with a fellow scientist, and political upheaval that threatens her dream of establishing a national park to ensure the safety of her precious lemurs. But in the end, her tenacity, daring, and passion for this endangered primate lead to extraordinary scientific breakthroughs and help bring the animal back from the brink of extinction.

Could not listen to this the narrator was awful
I feel sad for Patricia Chapple Wright as I am sure there have been others who have been put off by the appalling narration.
I would imagine this is a good story but I just could not listen to the dreadful American woman with her whining, over sincere drawl, badly read and pronounced English. Even allowing for an American pronunciation, I just could not get over the horrific American voice, so I have given up listening to it.
