“Out of the mist comes a faint munching sound, in African mountains, gorillas are found. A story of hope after despair, an orphaned gorilla receives loving care.”
Gamba, a young mountain gorilla spends his days learning the ways of the forest nurtured and surrounded by his family. When tragedy strikes, will Gamba survive?
Written in rhyming text and supplemented with facts against a background of full-color, realistic illustrations, Gamba - An Optimistic Mountain Gorilla Tale is a unique resource for classroom discussions.
