New book: Murder, Myths & Medicine by Rhishja Larson
Formidable forces behind the illegal trade in rhino horn.
Murder, Myths & Medicine is the first book about the rhino crisis of 2010 - one of the bloodiest years for rhino poaching in recent history.
The demand for illegal rhino horn is increasing, and rhinos are being pushed closer to extinction in the wild. International rhino horn syndicates have recruited corrupt conservationists to exploit loopholes in existing wildlife trade laws. Meanwhile, syndicate foot soldiers continue to gun down these increasingly rare pachyderms in national parks and sanctuaries across Africa and South Asia.
Murder, Myths & Medicineís unconventional layout enhances the fascinating subject matter with shocking photos and compelling facts that make the formidable forces behind the illegal rhino horn trade accessible to a wider audience than ever before.
Please note this book contains extremely graphic images and is not recommended for young children.
