Praise for The Last Rhinos
“A riveting account by a compassionate, dedicated man.”
“Riddled with heartfelt anecdotes, Anthony’s brave crusade to save these mammals—even at great risk to his own safety—reads like a safari adventure, a history lesson, and a warning that our careless ways will bring an end to so many magnificent species.”
“This inspiring story of courage and conservation is a moving testament of the good that can be done when there is a will.”
Praise for Lawrence Anthony
“The Indiana Jones of Conservation.”
—The Guardian (UK)
“Anthony has made a difference in the lives of many magnificent animals who otherwise would have been lost to the world.”
—Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals
“In my thirty-five years of studying man/animal communication I have met only a few individuals who have the ability to enter into the metaphysical realm of the exotic animal. Lawrence Anthony has been there and back.”
— Ralph Helfer, author of Modoc
“Anthony’s enthusiasm and obvious love for the bush shine through in hair-raising, sad, and funny tales.”
“Anthony deserves tremendous credit for his fearlessness and perseverance in rescuing countless animals against all odds.”
—The Explorers Journal
