When Alice and Shane, two American teenagers who are visiting Indonesia, follow a gibbon into a Borneo rain forest, they meet orangutans and other forest dwellers threatened with extinction. During their adventure they meet scientists working to save them. Alice and Shane visit an orangutan rehabilitation center and learn how ex-captive orangutans are rehabilitated and returned to their natural habitats. And deep in the forest they encounter the mythical “Old Man of the Forest” who challenges their right, as human beings, to even inhabit the earth. And… they learn how young people can make a difference in the world.

“… one of the leading environmental writers for children…” -- Dr. Jane Goodall
