Description:

In 2011 three private game reserves in South Africa's Western Cape were targeted by rhino poachers. This true story tells in chilling detail how the poachers prepared the scene, launched their attack and escaped into the night; and it details the traumatic aftermath for the victims and their carers. In particular, it follows the fates of Higgins and Lady, two rhinos that defied the odds by surviving, thanks to the extraordinary compassion of their carers and ongoing support from the South African Veterinary Association. Reading The Poacher's Moon: A True Story of Life, Death, Love and Survival in Africa is beeing confronted with both painful and happy memories, captured with almost uncanny accuracy by conservationist and author Richard Peirce.
