In "Ape House" Sara Gruen writes about Bonobos Chimps and their ability to communicate with each other, and with us - the humans. I was fortunate to have met, and speak to for a few minutes, Roger Fouts when he was lecturing about Washoe and her ability to sign. I went over to Central Washington University, in Ellensburg, twice to watch interactions, from a distance, with chimps and the humans who cared for for them. Roger Fouts's book "Next of Kin" is one of my all time favorite books about Chimps, language, love, identity and our role in all of it.
