Books Info:

Sophie's Story free pdf In 1990, while Vince Smith was working as a senior keeper at Chester Zoo, a newborn chimpanzee in his care was abandoned by her mother. Named Sophie, the baby chimp was taken home and hand-reared by Vince and his wife. Six months later another new baby arrived: Oliver, their son. This is an account of Sophie's life, taking readers on a journey through her early years in the English countryside with Vince and his family- her traumatic removal from the family she adored into a captive zoo world- her repatriation to Africa and eventual reunion with her human foster family- and, finally, her integration into a semi-wild group of chimpanzees.
