Research Notes
“I was inspired to write this book after spending three weeks on safari in East Africa. I was fortunate enough to see a rhino in its natural habitat, though it was so far away I needed high-power binoculars.”
“These books are well written and contain many outstanding photographs. They do an excellent job of describing the [African] animals, especially in pointing out any unique characteristics. Public schools and libraries would do well to own these books. They are sure to excite readers, young and old, to visit a zoo, to learn more about the animals, and to think about ways to protect the dwindling populations of rare and endangered species.”
