WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
A mix of Western science and Eastern mythology, [this book] could be called ?Zen and the Art of Rhinoceros Maintenance.? ---New York Post
[Mishra?s] a gutsy, committed man and a charming writer?and the rhinos could have no faster friend. ---National Geographic Adventure
The Soul of the Rhino . . . provides not only a rare insight into the personality and behavior of the highly endangered and little-known Asian rhino, but an equally absorbing picture of the people who share its habitat. ---Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE; founder, the Jane Goodall Institute; and UN Messenger of Peace
