From New York City in the 1960s to the depths of the Amazon in the 1970s and '80s, relive one woman's transformation from Brooklyn housewife to accomplished scientist. Before primatologist Patricia Chapple Wright became an expert on lemurs, she was enchanted by another primate—Aotus, the owl monkey, or "monkey of the night." Along her journey to discover the behavior of these unique nocturnal creatures, Wright found out more than she expected about family, human nature, and herself.
