I wanted it to be my fault. So Rick Bass, gifted memoirist and nature writer, on rhinos? I had been certain it would be a treat.
Bass takes us to the vast desert of Namibia where he plans to pursue black rhinos with a charismatic conservationist and indigenous trackers. Should be fascinating. Stubbornly determined to like this book, I found myself pouncing on any energetic paragraph, noting optimistically in the margins that perhaps the work was just now getting its legs.

READ THE NEW BOOK The Black Rhinos of Namibia: Searching for Survivors in the African Desert READ
Now he's off on a new, far-flung adventure in the Namib of southwest Africa on the trail of another fascinating, vulnerable species. The black rhino is a 3,pound, squinty-eyed giant that sports three-foot-long dagger horns, lives off poisonous plants, and goes for days without water.
Human intervention and cutting-edge conservation saved the rhinos - for now - from the brink of extinction, brought on by poaching and war.
Against the backdrop of one of the most ancient and harshest terrains on earth, Bass, with his characteristic insight and grace, probes the complex relationship between humans and nature and meditates on our role as both destroyer and saviour. In the tradition of Peter Matthiessen's "The Tree Where Man Was Born", Bass captures a haunting slice of Africa, especially of the black rhinos that glow ghostly white in the gleaming sun.
