"Between Man and Beast" by Monte Reel

  The mostly forgotten explorer Paul du Chaillu introduced the world to gorillas. His methods were attacked and his work discredited during his lifetime, but he also experienced fame and redemption.

Author Monte Reel illuminates the little-known tale of the 19th century explorer in his new book Between Between Man and Beast: An Unlikely Explorer, the Evolution Debates, and the African Adventure that Took the Victorian World by Storm

.

Although he had no scientific background, the young adventurer was hoping to tell the world what he had seen there: gorillas. He returned to London amid the heated debate over Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species.
