Will Fowlds’ passion for helping the rhino was the original inspiration for this book. Here is his Foreword to the anthology:

The deepening crisis faced by our rhino threatens to overwhelm us as we are assaulted daily by rotting images of animals mutilated at the hands of greedy man. The gruesome account of just two of the victims of poaching has reached into the hearts of these writers and resonates back on us from across the world. A challenge for us all to react. Our simple personal responses as caring custodians in the face of such a daunting reality is all that stands between life and extinction.

Who will join this global collection of humane reactions? Will there be enough to express our value for the natural world?  Are we able to focus fear, anger and bitter sadness into those simple abilities we have been blessed with and create the change on which we all depend?  I trust the power of the written word gathered within this wonderful collection, inspired by Harry Owen as an expression of his own journey, is enough to change our hearts and ignite us into action.
