A legendary conservationist. A lifetime spent fighting for nature. An indispensable message of hope.

The world-renowned naturalist and conservationist Jane Goodall has spent more than a half-century warning of our impact on our planet. From her famous encounters with chimpanzees in the forests of Gombe as a young woman to her tireless campaigning for the environment in her late eighties, Jane has become the godmother to a new generation of climate activists.

In The Book of Hope, Jane draws on the wisdom of a lifetime dedicated to nature to teach us how to find strength in the face of the climate crisis, and explains why she still has hope for the natural world and for humanity. In extraordinary conversations with her co-author Doug Abrams that weave together stories from her travels and activism, she offers readers a new understanding of the crisis we face and a compelling path forward for us all to create hope in our own lives and in the world.

The world needs a manifesto of hope now more than ever. This profound book from a legendary figure in the fight against climate change shows that even in the face of great adversity, we can find hope in human nature, and in nature itself.

About the Author

Dr Jane Goodall, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace, was born in the UK. In July 1960 at the age of 26 she travelled to what is now Tanzania, and ventured into the forests of Gombe and the world of wild chimpanzees. Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Dr Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world a remarkable window into the lives of humankind's closest living relatives. From those early days in the remote forests of Gombe, to the lecture halls of Cambridge (where she earned a PhD in ethology with no prior degree) and Stanford (as a visiting professor in human biology), through 60 years of ground-breaking research, Dr Goodall has become one of the most recognised living scientists in the world. Douglas Abrams is an author, editor and literary agent. In addition to co-writing The Book of Joy with the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu, he has had the privilege of working with other Nobel Laureates including Nelson Mandela, Jody Williams, and Elizabeth Blackburn. He has worked with many visionary scientists including Professor Stephen Hawking.
