This is both a personal celebration and a naturalists' study of the African black and white rhinos. Aimed at the layman, animal lover and conservationist, the book offers an affectionate and concerned insight into the life and times of these extraordinary and popular animals. Beginning with the evolution, mythology, history and natural history of the rhino, the author delves further into encounters by hynters and conservationists, the trade in rhino horns, game poaching and the often futile attempts at conserving the rhino. The book ends with a prognosis for the future, and assesses new directions in which the author believes that African conservation should move. Martin Booth spent part of his childhood in Africa and is a writer and conservationist.
