The tale of Paul Du Chaillu is a familiar one to cryptozoologists—he made the discovery of a new species of giant ape, but the experts of the day would not believe him. In this book, former Washington Post reporter Monte Reel gives us the riveting, almost unbelievable adventure of an unlikely young explorer who in the 1850s emerged from the jungles of Africa with evidence of a near-mythical creature—the gorilla—only to stumble straight into the virulent debate over Darwin’s theory of evolution. Paul Du Chaillu, armed with an astonishing collection of zoological specimens, experienced instant celebrity. But with that fame came whispers—about his past, his credibility, and his very identity—as he found himself caught up in an entirely different sort of jungle. Published at $26.95, our price only $14.95.
