Lawrence Anthony in the ELEPHANT WHISPERER 0f 1999 shares his heartening story of an African game reserve in Zululand, a herd of rogue pachyderms with Nana and Frankie, his eco-tourism lodge and the amazing rescue from aggression. Later he writes of the Congo’s LAST RHINOS on the rescue of the northern white rhino from poachers for the coveted rhino horn. His surviving wife, Francoise also writes her story, as she manages the game lodge in South Africa for eco-tourism.
Our connection to wild animals, wildlife and in particular, to the status of the world’s endangered species, ranges from loss, love, and the study and story of human behavior with wild animals. That touch with nature for city folk is dangerously tamed.
