A beautifully judged introduction to an intriguing, and now endangered, animal. A zesty heartfelt read for anyone of nine up, the book is rich in zoology, history and culture. Its rhinos march across cave walls and Indus Valley seals, mosaics, tapestries and canvases... Skipwith's multi-layered book uses art as a doorway to life and thought, and she stresses that four of the five remaining species of rhino are now at risk.

Fabulously uncute
Observer

Few books bring home the consequences of our actions as powerfully as this. Through full-page pictures and accompanying text, the books celebrate man's centuries old relationship with these majestic beasts ... tracing our long-standing and enduring love affair with them in a most poetic and elegiac manner ... And they raise perhaps the most critical philosophical question of our time, how can we kill something that we have treasured and loved for so long? Every house should have copies.
