“Stany’s harrowing story is about survival and trust—his trust of fellow human beings, who sometimes failed him, and his love for his friends the chimps and their love for him, which allowed him to survive when humans faltered. Most of all it is about the unconditional love we must all have for each other, for the animals and for our planet. David Blissett has beautifully told Stany’s story. Please read and enjoy.”
- Bernie Caulfield, Emmy-winning producer of Game of Thrones

“I hope you will be inspired by this life story of a gentle, unassuming African man whose devotion and sacrifice has given new life to so many chimpanzees whose families, like his own, were torn apart by violence.”
- Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, from her foreword
