Between Man and Beast by Monte Reel
This book combines adventure, human drama, and science against the background of the Victorian world. I had never heard of Paul Du Chaillu, a French speaking African explorer and naturalist who hunts down the elusive gorilla, but his story comes alive in this interesting read.
