The story of Paul Du Chaillu’s life was as astounding as it was complex. As a young man he led a pioneering expedition into the interior of Gabon, Africa and brought back specimens of the little known legendary gorilla. He then became the toast of Victorian Britain just when Darwin’s ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES was published and walked right into the hard fought battles over the differences between a man and an ape. Then,suddenly, he became a discredited figure hated by the academics and public who had supported him. This amazing story is captured in all its detail and complexity in a new book titled BETWEEN MAN AND APE:  AN UNLIKELY EXPLORER, THE EVOLUTION DEBATES AND THE AFRICAN ADVENTURE THAT TOOK THE VICTORIAN WORLD BY STORM. Author MONTE REEL has woven together all the various threads to give us a fascinating story of celebrity, evolution, academic rivalries, empire, religion and race.
