Summary
In a magical place called the Congo, in the beautiful forests and jungles of Virunga National Park, lives a young female mountain gorilla named Miza. She was just like any other baby gorilla, riding on her mother's back, playing, taking naps. Then, one day, when Miza and her mother were out searching for food, Miza's mother disappeared, leaving her baby alone and frightened. Miza's father, a fierce silverback named Kabirizi and the leader of Virunga's largest family of mountain gorillas, set out to find Miza
Summary
Left orphaned when her parents were killed, a young female Mountain Gorilla was left to fend for herself in the volcanic mountains of Vigunga National Park until she was suddenly adopted by a Silverback Mountain Gorilla who made her part of his family of twenty-seven, in a true story of a very rare event and amazing animal rescue
