"Fowler’s refreshing honesty and affection for the gorillas runs through every page of this book."

—Elizabeth Hess, author of Nim Chimpsky: The Chimp Who Would Be Human

Advance praise for
A Forest in the clouds

"Finally a detailed account on Dian Fossey, the savior of the mountain gorillas who was murdered in l985 at the Karisoke Research Center. It must have been hard for Fowler to relive the abuse he was subjected to by this damaged woman, but I’m glad he has left us such a full record of his time in the magical Virungas."

—Alex Shoumatoff, author of The Wasting of Borneo

"John Fowler is a born storyteller."


"Prepare to climb with him high up into the forest as you experience fear, exhaustion, rain-drenched chill, and, finally, the supreme thrill of proximity with the awe-inspiring mountain gorillas. It was her love for them, and her fight to save them, that finally alienated Dian Fossey from human society. Unpredictable, tormented, and embittered, she now casts a dark shadow over this remote world."

—Jane Goodall
