Narrator Simon Vance is captivating as he recounts conservationist Lawrence Anthony's adventures in seeking to protect endangered animals in Africa. Anthony sets off on a quest to save the northern white rhinos living in an area of the Congo controlled by the Lord's Resistance Army. In a surprising turn of events, while seeking to enlist the help of the rebels in protecting the animals, Anthony instead finds himself precariously in the middle of peace negotiations. Vance heightens the suspense in these tense moments and is expansive in conveying Anthony's descriptions of life on his Thula Thula Reserve in South Africa and the assorted animals who live there. Anthony's dedication to conservation is admirable, and Vance vividly depicts his efforts for listeners. S.E.G.
