This story follows three families and one black rhino through the difficult transition of the former colonial southern Rhodesia to what is now Zimbabwe. During the three decades of war and political upheaval, a large number of species became endangered, including the humans living there. Although Park captures the unsettled and dangerous nature of the era, his characters are somewhat stereotypical, and the story could use judicious editing to eliminate redundant and unnecessary content. Narrator Richard Aspel's presentation of black African accents makes those characters sound almost robotic. Still, listeners who enjoy epic historical fiction might find this audiobook appealing.—Joanna M. Burkhardt, Univ. of Rhode Island Libs., Providence
