The remarkable story of Grant Fowlds, who has dedicated his life to saving the imperiled rhinos, vividly told with Graham Spence, co- author of the bestselling The Elephant Whisperer. Growing up on a farm in the eastern Cape of South Africa, Grant developed a deep love of nature, turning his back on the hunting to focus on saving wildlife of all kinds and the environment that sustains both of them and us. He is a passionate conservationist who puts himself on the front line protecting rhinos in the wild-right now, against armed poachers- and in the long term, through his work with schoolchildren, communities, and policymakers, where the natural world and the lives of these incredible creatures need to be valued as priceless and irreplaceable wonders to ensure their protection.
