Pressestimmen

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 "(UK)

"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."

--"Booklist

""Anthony deserves tremendous credit for his fearlessness and perseverance in rescuing countless animals against all odds."

--"The Explorers Journal"

Kurzbeschreibung

Life on Lawrence Anthony's game reserve, Thula Thula, is rarely dull, what with spitting cobras endangering his rangers and the unpredictable behaviour of his herd of elephants. But at least his orphaned rhino Heidi is calm around people, and a favourite of staff and guests alike. Until she is brutally slaughtered for her horn. Furious and heartsick, Lawrence heads off to track down the poachers, but also embarks on a bid to save the Congo's last few northern white rhino from extinction. Diplomatic efforts are failing, so he takes action himself, flying into a warzone to negotiate with rebels. Will he survive his most dangerous adventure yet, and will Thula Thula survive the drought that threatens the region? Peopled with unforgettable characters, from the local witch doctor to eccentric conservationist Brendan and the elephants who have such an extraordinary bond with Lawrence, The Last Rhinos is a sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always gripping read.

Wer sich für Safaries, Game-Reserve u.d.gl. interessiert, sollte dieses Buch auf jeden Fall lesen um einen Eindruck in die politischen Spielchen Africas zu bekommen um zu verstehen, warum die Natur nicht mehr lange so sein wird, wie man sie erwartet und derzeit noch findet.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Book Full of Real-World Disappointment 23. Juli 2012
Von J. Knauss - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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 von 5 Sternen Fascinating story with deep Africa and animal insights. A damn good read. 4. Februar 2013
Von David Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Last Rhinos 10. Februar 2013
Von Sue Gurney S.A. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A lingering sadness ....... 11. Juni 2012
Von Pages & Pages - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Last Rhino 21. Mai 2013
Von Jillian Farkas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
A wonderfully written book that tells some of the adventures of a remarkable man and his quest to protect the beautiful animals of Africa. He is able to show the reader just what dedication & lengths it takes to keep a species, not just alive but thriving against ignorance & greed. Thoroughly enjoyable although made me cry several times.
