Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Praise for "The Last Rhinos"

"A riveting account by a compassionate, dedicated man."
--Kirkus Reviews

"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."
--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Lawrence Anthony

"The Indiana Jones of Conservation."
--The Guardian

"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

"The day after conservationist Lawrence Anthony died, it's said that a herd of elephant turned up and loitered at his house, as if paying their respects. This says a lot about the man who . . . was following up his ele-rescuing mission with a quest to save another African icon from extinction . . . this is a gut-wrenching, sad but inspiring tale of life at the sharp end of conservation."
--Wanderlust magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

Lawrence Anthony's South African game reserve is home to many animals he has saved, from a remarkable herd of elephants to a badly behaved bushbaby called George. Described as 'the Indiana Jones of conservation', when one of his rhinos was brutally slaughtered for her horn, he didn't hesitate to lead an armed response against the poachers. Then he learned that there were only a handful of northern white rhinos left in the wild, living in an area of the Congo controlled by the infamous Lord's Resistance Army and soon to be hunted into extinction. Lawrence knew he had to take action.

What followed was an extraordinary adventure, as he headed into the jungle to negotiate with the rebels, while battling to save his own animals from terrible drought and to save the eyesight of his beloved elephant matriarch Nana. The Last Rhinos is peopled with unforgettable characters, both human and animal, and is a sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always exciting read.

'Anthony was a charismatic figure whose life combined Gerald Durrell-esque animal antics with Wilbur Smith bush heroics . . . a rattling read with an urgent message' BBC Wildlife Magazine

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Great Book Full of Real-World Disappointment 23 juillet 2012
Par Jessica Knauss, Author - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I hesitated to give this book a high rating because it wasn't what I was hoping for: an account of the way intrepid humans saved a bunch of rhinoceroses, filled with charming anecdotes about rhino behavior. I don't know what I was thinking when I expected that, because I know the situation for all the rhino species is unspeakably dire. Co-author Graham Spence says he thought of calling the book "Blood Horn" and that might have been a more direct approach to indicate that this book is, at least in part, an outraged call to action. The Last Rhinos as a title feels contemplative and wistful, as if there is nothing left to be done, and unfortunately, that is the attitude that too many people are already taking. There are only three rhinos in this entire book. Lawrence Anthony never even gets to meet a single member of the subspecies he's trying to save before they're utterly gone. Instead of the happy stories I somehow expected, this book is a fact-and-experience-based indictment of the fatal disregard humans have for the other species on this planet.

A single anecdote about the rhino who lives in Thula Thula, Anthony's reserve in South Africa, serves to belie the idea that rhinos are not intelligent or adaptable, and I will treasure that. Perhaps to try and make up for the general lack of rhino experiences, Anthony intersperses what becomes a bizarre and scary narrative of human politics with incidents involving elephants, bushbabies, buffalo, and other wonderful animals. All the stories point to his deep belief that animals are as worthy as humans to occupy their space and live undisturbed. At a couple of points, he comments that any person who spends enough time with animals will witness evidence of their intelligence and sociability. There are also many examples that make the reader appreciate the difficulty of the life of conservationists in the wild and the talent and bravery of people who work with endangered animals.

The beginning and much of the rest of the book kept me on the edge of my seat with exciting, suspenseful and true occurrences, definitely material for the cinema. Please, someone, make a movie of this book (perhaps with a few more darling rhinos in the film version) and show it to people who consume rhino horn.

Because Anthony does not accomplish any of his goals for the rhinos. Absolutely everything goes badly wrong, often causing physical reactions in this reader. To top it all off, before the book was published, Lawrence Anthony passed away, and the animals lost their incredible champion. We're still here, and we need to step in for them because, incredibly, these half-ton, armored creatures with giant swords on their heads can't defend themselves from human greed. There's still a chance to turn this sad story around for the remaining rhinos.

The Northern White Rhino is the largest animal to go extinct since the woolly mammoth.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating story with deep Africa and animal insights. A damn good read. 4 février 2013
Par David Hughes - Publié sur Amazon.com

I read Anthony's "Elephant Whisperer" and couldn't get enough of his stories, so to speak, and The Last Rhinos" did not disappoint.
Anybody with a love of Africa, animals and special people should read these books. It also focuses the mind on the senseless specie destruction - eg rhinos and great apes. What Anthony has achieved is nothing less than magnificent and it should alert caring people to do more to protect our heritage. Anthony's death was a huge loss to Africa and especially the efforts of those wanting to help others help themselves. If these books don't move you - then stick to cowboy books.

Lawrence Anthony was truly dedicated to conservation. His tireless efforts to save wild animals in the bush took him to some very scary places and his interaction with potentially dangerous people underscored his determination. His passion was unrelenting.

In "The Last Rhino's" he travels extensively to keep the small remaining group of rhino's from permanent extinction , which was a daunting task given the popularity of poaching.

This was very educational and really underscores both the need to stop poaching altogether and eradicate the myths surrounding medicinal value of ground ivory.

Unless we ban together to carry on his vision, our grandchildren will never be able to see wild animals other than in the zoo's. We are destroying these magnificent animals at alarming rates all for the sake of greed. Lawrence knew this and made his life's mission to do something about it.

This book is more than just an interesting read. It raises the bar and sets an example for us all how "we" collectively can make a difference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A lingering sadness ....... 11 juin 2012
Par Pages & Pages - Publié sur Amazon.com

Having read The Elephant Whisperer, and thoroughly enjoyed it, I was very excited and keen to read The Last Rhinos.
The author's journey to save the northern white rhino is written in such a way that you feel you are present during the whole experience, and the atmosphere of being able to comunicate with animals, leaves you with feelings of being driven to save our wild life as there is untold information and abilities we are losing in our ignorance.
The only part of this book I did not enjoy was knowing that Lawrence Anthony had died and that my short journey with him had come to an end.

A wonderful true life story about an amazing man and his efforts to save our wild life. R.I.P.
It is amazingly unpretentious in the writing but somehow manages to pull the reader into each and every scenario.
Even I who have lived in South Africa almost all my life had my eyes opened to what goes on behind in the political scenes of Africa..
I think that the translation from Afrikaans (which I speak) was not as 'perfect' as The Elephant Whisperer,having said that, this book and it's disastrous tale of our Rhinos being killed and the shambles that is African governing is a must read for everyone.
