Read full description of the books The Last Rhinos: The Powerful Story of One Man's Battle to Save a Species:As soon as I finished The Elephant Whisperer, I began eagerly awaiting The Last Rhinos. Then, when Lawrence Anthony passed away in March, my waiting became bittersweet. I knew that this would be the last time I would get to enjoy a new book by one of my favorite conservationists.
I expected that The Last Rhinos would, like Babylon's Ark and The Elephant Whisperer, focus on Anthony's work with endangered species and the day-to-day life of his South African wildlife preserve, Thula Thula. Instead, it was as much about the trials and tribulations he went through negotiating with the Lord's Resistance Army in order to get to the rhinos as it was about the animals themselves. Also unlike Anthony's previous two books, this one's ending is not entirely uplifting because his quest is largely unsuccessful (though there ARE positives).
The book provides insight into the political culture of subsaharan Africa as well as the precarious situation of wild rhinos and several other endangered species. It's also the last we will hear of Anthony's unique and fearless voice. The Last Rhinos probably isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's a must-read for everyone who cheered for Lawrence Anthony and his extraordinary work during his lifetime.
