More Information
Rick Bass first made a name for himself as a writer and seeker of rare, iconic animals, including the grizzlies and wolves of the American West. Now he?s off on a new, far-flung adventure in the Namib of southwest Africa on the trail of another fascinating, vulnerable species.

Human intervention and cutting-edge conservation saved the rhinos?for now?from the brink of extinction, brought on by poaching and war. Against the backdrop of one of the most ancient and harshest terrains on earth, Bass, with his characteristic insight and grace, probes the complex relationship between humans and nature and meditates on our role as both destroyer and savior.

In the tradition of Peter Matthiessen?s The Tree Where Man Was Born, Bass captures a haunting slice of Africa, especially of the black rhinos that glow ghostly white in the gleaming sun.
