The vast majority of the book was about what the author went through in order to get protection for some white rhinos with the help of the Lord's Resistance Army. The sad part is that the author died of a heart attack 2 years ago at age 61, so this is likely the last of his personal stories.

Please, someone, make a movie of this book perhaps with a few more darling rhinos in the film version and show it to people who consume rhino horn.
