THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER "Malby-Anthony offers a book of great inspiration and wide appeal to nature-loving readers." —Publishers Weekly A heart-warming sequel to the international bestseller The Elephant Whisperer, by Lawrence Anthony's wife Françoise Malby-Anthony. A chic Parisienne, Françoise never expected to find herself living on a South African game reserve. But then she fell in love with conservationist Lawrence Anthony and everything changed. After Lawrence’s death, Françoise faced the daunting responsibility of running Thula Thula without him. Poachers attacked their rhinos, their security team wouldn’t take orders from a woman and the authorities were threatening to cull their beloved elephant family. On top of that, the herd’s feisty new matriarch Frankie didn’t like her. In this heart-warming and moving book, Françoise describes how she fought to protect the herd and to make her dream of building a wildlife rescue center a reality. She found herself caring for a lost baby elephant who turned up at her house, and offering refuge to traumatized orphaned rhinos, and a hippo called Charlie who was scared of water. As she learned to trust herself, she discovered she’d had Frankie wrong all along. Filled with extraordinary animals and the humans who dedicate their lives to saving them, An Elephant in My Kitchen is a captivating and gripping read.

Examines what literature reveals about human attitudes towards elephants and who shows compassion towards them Elephants are in dire straits – again. They were virtually extirpated from much of Africa by European hunters in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but their numbers resurged for a while in the heyday of late-colonial conservation efforts in the twentieth. Now, according to one estimate, an elephant is being killed every fifteen minutes. This is at the same time that the reasons for being especially compassionate and protective towards elephants are now so well-known that they have become almost a cliché: their high intelligence, rich emotional lives including a capacity for mourning, caring matriarchal societal structures, that strangely charismatic grace. Saving elephants is one of the iconic conservation struggles of our time. As a society we must aspire to understand how and why people develop compassion – or fail to do so – and what stories we tell ourselves about animals that reveal the relationship between ourselves and animals. This book is the first study to probe the primary features, and possible effects, of some major literary genres as they pertain to elephants south of the Zambezi over three centuries: indigenous forms, early European travelogues, hunting accounts, novels, game ranger memoirs, scientists’ accounts, and poems. It examines what these literatures imply about the various and diverse attitudes towards elephants, about who shows compassion towards them, in what ways and why. It is the story of a developing contestation between death and compassion, between those who kill and those who love and protect. Death and Compassion is the first study to probe various literary genres. It examines what these literatures imply about human attitudes towards elephants and who shows compassion towards them.

Lawrence Anthony's South African game reserve is home to many animals he has saved, from a remarkable herd of elephants to a badly behaved bushbaby called George. Described as 'the Indiana Jones of conservation', when one of his rhinos was brutally slaughtered for her horn, he didn't hesitate to lead an armed response against the poachers. Then he learned that there were only a handful of northern white rhinos left in the wild, living in an area of the Congo controlled by the infamous Lord's Resistance Army and soon to be hunted into extinction. Lawrence knew he had to take action. What followed was an extraordinary adventure, as he headed into the jungle to negotiate with the rebels, while battling to save his own animals from terrible drought and to save the eyesight of his beloved elephant matriarch Nana. The Last Rhinos is peopled with unforgettable characters, both human and animal, and is a sometimes funny, sometimes moving, always exciting read. 'Anthony was a charismatic figure whose life combined Gerald Durrell-esque animal antics with Wilbur Smith bush heroics . . . a rattling read with an urgent message' BBC Wildlife Magazine

Dr Dave Cooper, Rhinos Without Borders veterinarian, and Debbie Cooper of iSimangaliso Wetland Park 'A rollicking true-life adventure that celebrates rhinos and people' Guy Rogers, Daily Herald 'Truly awe-inspiring . . . Read this book. You will get a sense of Africa like never before, from a true African soul.' David S. Lee, Limbani in the blockbuster movie Black Panther 'An excellent read . . . both sobering and uplifting' Moira Smith, General Manager Africa & Middle East, Goway Travel What would drive a man to 'smuggle' rhino horn back into Africa at great risk to himself? This is just one of the situations Grant Fowlds has put himself in as part of his ongoing fight against poaching, in order to prove a link between southern Africa and the illicit, lucrative trade in rhino horn in Vietnam. Shavings of rhino horn are sold as a snake-oil 'cure' for colds or impotence, but a rhino's horn has no magical, medicinal properties. It is for this that rhinoceroses are being killed at an escalating rate that puts the survival of the species in jeopardy. This corrupt, illegal war on wildlife has brought an iconic animal to the brink of extinction. Growing up on a farm in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, Grant developed a deep love of nature, turning his back on hunting to focus on saving wildlife of all kinds and the environment that sustains both them and us. He is a passionate conservationist who puts himself on the front line of protecting rhinos in the wild - right now, against armed poachers; but in the longer term, too, through his work with schoolchildren, communities and policymakers. We are most grateful to photographer Gerhard van der Westhuizen for the use of his stunning photograph on the cover of the book.

My Baby Rhinos

The extinction of the rhino population due to poaching was becoming a real possibility. My Baby Rhinos - The Story of Kelsey's African Adventure! tells the story of this amazing experience from Kelsey's perspective.

It all started with a book Kelsey's mom read, The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony, which tells the story of his early years establishing the Thula Thula Game Reserve in South Africa and the incredible bond he built with a rogue herd of wild elephants. Lawrence's conservation efforts soon became focused on the African rhino population that was in danger of extinction because of poaching. Due to local poaching near Thula Thula, more than a few orphaned baby rhinos were brought to Thula Thula, lovingly raised from infancy and then released to the wild. Two of the orphaned rhinos, Thabo and Ntombi, had been released to the wild but often came back at night to the grounds of the Safari Lodge where they were raised to sleep in the safety of their old home. And that is what Kelsey and her family found their first night at Thula Thula, two young rhinos curled up together asleep under the window of their hut! They looked so sweet, it was impossible to think that anyone would want to harm them. After visiting the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage, which was nearing completion, Kelsey and her family realized how important it was to help save these babies. The extinction of the rhino population due to poaching was becoming a real possibility. My Baby Rhinos - The Story of Kelsey's African Adventure! tells the story of this amazing experience from Kelsey's perspective. The fundraising she did for the Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage with the support of her family and generous community of Laguna Beach taught her that even a young girl can make a difference. Kelsey's hope is for her children's story to be translated into languages all over the world to spread awareness and to inspire others to start their own projects to help protect these special creatures for generations to come.

SHOCK AND AWE Mischief is on the wing and perhaps deliverance for a flock of San Francisco, fringe-dwelling creatives. A precocious and rebellious African grey parrot lands on the shoulder of an elephant whisperer and begins to spout about the Bush White House and Saddam Hussein, soon provoking a madcap, desperate blackmail attempt. "A beautiful story that evokes radical Berkeley, the magic of the Sacramento estuary, and life among a memorable family of performers in San Francisco's North Beach." -- Phil Aaberg, award-winning composer and musician "A riveting story about America that harkens back to the rise and fall of Vedic Civilization. It relates the story of the weightless Hamsa Swans, the baffling disappearance of the Sarasvati River—and most beautifully—the role of elephants as guardians of the Floodplain of Natural Wonder." -- Satish Kumar, Resurgence Editor "So rich with the details of elephant consciousness and why we must do everything in our power to stop their abuse." -- Katherine Connor, Founder, Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary "An abomination. The bird must be silenced." -- Richard Nixon (as channeled by Nixon actor, Darrell Duffey) "SADDAM'S PARROT looks deep into the soul of animals, helping us realize our great mission to protect them. What a beautiful, lyrical story." -- Dagy Galliethner-Steiner, equine artist
