At least as much memoir as natural history, this book was not exactly my cup of tea. Carol shared her angst about public speaking with us as well as her insecurity about public perception of their research trips. In the end it was revealed that the whole book was intended to 'set the record straight' with regard to the research program the couple pursued in Africa. Despite all that, there was some wonderful information about Rhinos and about getting around in the African outback.

Very interesting book that covers much more than the rhino de-horning process that the authors went to Namibia to study. Their life, the hardships, the politics - all written in a light hand (for the most part). I read this a few weeks before travelling to Namibia. Will be interesting to see what it is like there in reality.
