Richard Leakey spent years trying to save Africa's animals. Now he's trying to save a nation. Leakey began his career following in the footsteps of his famous parents, Mary and Louis, becoming a renowned paleoanthropologist and head of Kenya's National Museums. In 1989, Kenyan president Daniel arap Moi put Leakey in charge of wildlife management. Ivory poachers were killing hundreds of elephants annually and the organisation was close to collapse. Leakey's clashes with poachers and the dictator Moi will provide a dramatic focus for the book. He will also detail the challenge he faced when he lost both his legs in a suspicious plane crash that may have been caused by sabotage. He has had over 13 operations to allow him to walk again.
