Dreams, Guns, & Gorillas

Dreams, Guns, & Gorillas: A Memoir of Survival

by A. F.

This is the story of an 18 year old girl’s experience studying mountain gorillas in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda, before the massacre (remnant of the Rwandan Genocide) in 1999. This is about her struggle to survive through starvation, rape, and abandonment in the jungle, the human and ecological challenges the mountain gorillas face, and her dreamtime connection to the mountain gorillas, which in the end saves her. The sustainability of the gorillas and the fate of the local human population are inextricably intertwined.
