About the Book

"An entertaining and readable account of what life is like, not only for baboons, but those who watch them....Fascinating and compelling reading." --New York Times

Book Synopsis

The author presents her observations of the behavior, habits, and society of baboons in Kenya.

From the Back Cover

When Shirley C. Strum first set out in 1972 to do graduate work with baboons in Kenya, conventional wisdom had it that primate society, epitomized by monkeys such as baboons, was based on aggression and ruled by the males, their brute force and their dominance hierarchy. But her absorbing chronicle of fifteen years spent observing a troop of baboons has revealed remarkable new aspects of animal behavior.
