Reason for Hope: A Spiritual Journey

By: Jane Goodall

Reason for Hope: A Spiritual Journey was a truly inspiring story about a true legend. From the very beginning, Jane Goodall was a woman who had a dream and with the support of her mother and Louis Leakey she was able to live out all of the fantasies she had envisioned from an early age.
