|I Remember Samson by Darlene Winter
In almost every generation, an animal will be born that is
destined to be special and will capture the hearts of the
people who are lucky enough to see him/her.
Such an animal was Samson the gorilla at the Milwaukee
County Zoo. He was believed to be the largest gorilla in
captivity and was known worldwide. He was on television,
had his picture taken thousands of times, and was
mentioned in many books. However, this is the first book
that was written in collaboration with Samson’s long time
keeper and friend, Sam LaMalfa.
