Review

"A well-known nature writer travels to the Namib Desert, one of the oldest unchanged landscapes on earth . . . an exciting adventure." "Kirkus"" --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

An extraordinary exploration and meditation . . . [Bass] transports us along on this wonder-filled tour, full of hardness and hope, into an otherworldly place that mirrors our own. "National Geographic Traveler"
Black rhinos are not actually black. They are, however, giant animals with tiny eyes, feet the diameter of laundry baskets, and horns that are prized for both their aesthetic and medicinal qualities. Until recently, these creatures were perched on the edge of extinction, their numbers dwindling as they succumbed to poachers and the ravages of civil war. Now their numbers are rising, thanks to a groundbreaking new conservation method from the Save the Rhino Trust: make sure that rhinos are worth more alive than dead.
Rick Bass, who has long worn the uneasy mantle of both activist and hunter, traveled to Namibia to find black rhinos. The tale of his journey provides a deeper understanding of these amazing animals and of just what needs to be done to protect them.
Bass provides a singularly thoughtful portrait of a unique animal, and a meditation on mankind s relationship to both it and the natural world as a whole. "Minneapolis Star Tribune"
