After discovering how excellent the last book
in this series (Strike of the Shark) was, I doubted that Rage
of the Rhino could be an improvement. How wrong I was.
This book continues the story of Beck Granger, a young hero who is
determined to continue his parents' legacy to save the world from pollution, poachers, and
greedy companies that would do anything to make more money. After his adventure in the
last book, Beck is wary about leaving the home. But disaster strikes when an e-mail shows
up from an old friend of his parents. She is asking him to come to Africa so he can make a
SAVE-THE-RHINOS campaign to discourage people who kill rhinos for their keratin and ivory.
But it turns out all is not as it seems in Africa.
Like most Bear Grylls books, Rage of the Rhino provides life-saving
information. Because this book is based in a safari setting, the tips include things like:
that you can find safe drinking water from squeezing elephant dung, or that zebra stomachs
make a great insulant for food.
This is an amazing book, the characters are relateable, the concept is
understandable. It's a simple story with a brilliant plot. I cant wait to read Bear
Grylls' next book!
