 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers invites you to the launch of Walking With Gorillas: The Journey of an African Wildlife Vet by Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka.

In her enchanting memoir, Kalema-Zikusoka, Uganda’s first wildlife veterinarian, tells the remarkable story from her animal-loving childhood to her career protecting endangered mountain gorillas and other wild animals.

‘Her story is amazing and I recommend this book to everyone interested in conservation, alleviating poverty, and the role of women in society. But perhaps most importantly it is a truly inspiring story of how one determined and dedicated woman overcame many setbacks and faced many dangers to follow and realize her dream. She has made a huge difference to conservation in Uganda and she is an inspiring example to young-and not so young-people everywhere.’ – Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE and UN Messenger of Peace, from the Foreword
