Story Summary

Taneya loved to help her father check in on bands of gorillas in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. But when her father was away and she heard that poachers had set snares close to her favorite band, Taneya broke her father's cardinal rule and went alone to disarm the snare. Unfortunately when she found the snare, the playful gorillas were already perilously close to it. It would take courage and some quick thinking to save her beloved gorillas.
