About the Author

Australian writer Tony Park fell in love with South Africa on a short trip in 1995. He is a major in the Australian Army Reserve and has worked in journalism and PR, including six months in Afghanistan as PR officer for the Australian ground forces. Tony and his wife Nicola now divide their time between Sydney and the African bush.

Reviews

This story follows three families and one black rhino through the difficult transition of the former colonial southern Rhodesia to what is now Zimbabwe. During the three decades of war and political upheaval, a large number of species became endangered, including the humans living there. Although Park captures the unsettled and dangerous nature of the era, his characters are somewhat stereotypical, and the story could use judicious editing to eliminate redundant and unnecessary content. Narrator Richard Aspel's presentation of black African accents makes those characters sound almost robotic. Still, listeners who enjoy epic historical fiction might find this audiobook appealing.-Joanna M. Burkhardt, Univ. of Rhode Island Libs., Providence (c) Copyright 2011.
