Dinerstein provides a glimmer of hope... with his success story of the conservation of the Indian or greater one-horned rhinoceros.... [He] discusses the implications of this success story for conservation efforts elsewhere, and clearly rejects attempts to capture rare animals and maintain their populations by captive breeding.

This book offers much to anyone interested in practical, how-to conservation, far-away landscapes, large and exotic-sounding mammals, biodiversity, planning,and tropical ecology.... a beautifully candid account... this is the book that conservation pragmatists and cynics should read to discover why optimism about the conservation of large mammals in human-dominated landscapes is not misplaced.
(Joel Berger Conservation Biology
an excellent overview of many aspects of the biology and conservation of greater one-horned rhinos in Nepal.
(Samuel Zschokke Basic and Applied Ecology

(Mark S. Boyce Ecology
Eric Dinerstein has dedicated himself to the rhinos of Chitwan; he is the best friend they have ever had.... This elegant case history of Chitwan shows that one individual can have a major conservation impact if he or she makes a tenacious commitment. Results such as these provide a 'kernel of hope,' to quote the author.... The rhinos of Chitwan are unaware of their precarious existence. Their fate depends wholly on us, on our commitment to protect them forever.
