Africa In My Blood
Boston, Houghton Mifflin, (2000). Second printing of this autobiography in letters, this being "the early years," through 1966. Inscribed by Goodall to Oliver Sacks: "For Oliver - With great respect and admiration to one who has unlocked so many of the deep secrets & mysteries of the human mind with so much passion and so much compassion. With love/ Jane." Sacks shared with Goodall the condition of prosopagnosia, or face blindness, a condition that made it difficult for Goodall to recognize the many people she met in her worldwide travels. (It also made it harder for her to recognize the chimpanzees that she studied.) Fine in a fine dust jacket, with the business card of Goodall's executive assistant at the Goodall Institute laid in.
