Media reviews

"In Namibia a radical solution [to stop the wholesale slaughter of rhinos] has been tried--removing the rhino's horns to remove the poacher's desire to kill. The two authors ... and their young daughter ... spent 3 seasons in Namibia ... dehorning rhino and researching the wildlife biology of this species. The book is a narrative of their time in Namibia. It reads like a novel, starting with their first tentative steps in the country and following their scientific and social interaction with the people of the country. Through their writing you can feel the heat and sweat, the exhilaration of the work and their reaction to feeling like unwanted invaders of privacy when meeting with remote tribes people. When their fourth session of work is stopped before it really starts because of politics, the reader gets and object lesson about the politics of conservation. This book is every bit as good as 'Out of Africa' but with a lot more good ecology in it."--Bulletin of the British Ecology
