Beautiful photography, heart-warming dialogue, and touching stories. This will keep your interest the entire time. In fact, I didn't want it to end; I wanted to see more of her life, hear more of her stories. She is an inspiration to so many people, myself included

"This life is more than just making money". This follows Jane on her global travels to share her vision of saving ourselves by becoming connected. In her Roots and Shoots program, 3 projects are required: Help the community, help animals and help the environment. Who knew that Roots & Shoots would assist the Pine Ridge community in the US where out of 65 young Native American men, only 15 out of Robert Whitemountain's deceased (hung himself) son's age had not been murdered or committed suicide. A youth group raising chickens so the Bushmen don't eat and decimate the chimps and other wild game populations. Another to visit elderly folks that had been abandoned by their families. Jane is awarded the title, "A messenger of peace". Where all people share the same philosophy to share the resources, raise the children to be aware, and to connect the self back from hopelessness to healing. A soft-spoken warrior of the soul with a well-touched, kissed, and traveled cloth stuffed monkey given to her by a wounded, blind Marine. "THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!"

She has a great story to tell. I wish they had included more of the earlier film clips when she was 20 something and left in the Jungle to observe.

I was a little disappointed, as I thought it would be more inspiring and have some deep lessons with detailed information, but it is really a biography and autobiography of Jane Goodall. Some amazing vistas and some good interviews, but it wasn't as good as I expected.
