This important book provides a readable, remarkably thorough, first look at the biology of the muriqui, the largest New World primate… Comparable to the works of Jane Goodall, this highly recommended book will appeal to a wide range of readers.—T. C. Williams, Choice

Years of fieldwork and focused research have contributed to this fascinating and ultimately optimistic publication, which outlines the fight against extinction of the wooly spider monkey. Muriquies remain one of the most endangered primates, but the detailed profile drawn up by the author and her fellow researchers has provided crucial information in their fight for survival. In all areas Strier has carried out impressively thorough and precise research, outlined here in a very readable form, accessible to specialist and laymen alike.British Bulletin of Publications

A highly readable mixture of personal anecdotes and serious science that will inevitably be compared with Old World classics such as Jane Goodall’s In the Shadow of Man and Dian Fossey’s Gorillas in the Mist.—Stephen F. Ferrari, International Journal of Primatology
