National Geographic's Face to Face series has been frequently honored by the NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book process, and this book joins that prestigious list for 2010. Outstanding photography and concise text introduce readers to the characteristics, behaviors, and habitats of the largest primate.

The book contains firsthand information and photographs provided by the authors who convey the impressions and emotions of their close encounters with gorillas in the field. Students will return again and again to the photos to observe and marvel at the personalities that the photographers have captured. Conservation messages about gorillas and their habitats are included. A glossary, an index, and summaries of facts support the text and add to the value of this book as a source of information or to inspire support for preserving these primates in their environment.
