Kelly Enright is a cultural and environmental historian, and a museum anthropologist based in New Jersey, USA.
'The latest addition to Reaktion's splendid "Animal" series concerns a beast that was confused with the unicorn, libelled by Pliny (he called it "plotting, conniving and underhanded) and praised by Ernest Hemingway ("the hell of an animal") though only as a trophy.' - The Independent 'The latest monograph in the winning Animal series - truly natural histories, each title a wide-ranging look at a single creature, replete with splendid illustrations - is perhaps the finest yet. Like its predecessors, this volume alternately informs, delights, moves, and astonishes. Success here owes as much to author as to subject. The former, a cultural and environmental historian, acquits herself admirably, distilling fact from fiction, employing supple and incisive prose, and trailing casual acumen in her measured wake.' - The Atlantic 'A fascinating book that explores the myths, history, evolution and habits of this now endangered species.' - Talking Travel Africa
