Description
Writer and environmental activist Rick Bass—author of the novel Nashville Chrome (a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize) and the memoir Why I Came West (a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist)—here explores a unique landscape and the improbable animal that makes its home there. The black rhino is a 3,000-pound, squinty-eyed giant that sports three-foot-long horns, lives on poisonous plants, and goes for days without water. But this living tank of the Namib Desert is in danger of disappearing forever. Bass describes how human intervention and cutting-edge conservation have saved the rhinos—for now—and probes the complex relationship between humans and nature.
