The acclaimed novel, Rhinowalker, is the story of a strong-willed mat-weaver who becomes telephathically bonded to a gray rhino.  The strength of that bond pulls the inexperienced mat-weaver, Cesia, into the unexplored territories--the wilderness of a new world.  There, she must learn how to live among the predators and dangers from which Gray Dubelhyrn cannot protect her.  Together, Cesia and Gray Dubelhyrn face the challenge of proving to humanity that even a mat-weaver can test the limits of belief and strength in order to build a future with the gray rhinos. 

But Gray Dubelhyrn, and his rhinowalker, Cesia, find that the secrets of the alien ruins near Dubelhyrn's plains hold a deadly truth.  With the elders plotting war in the south, and the aliens planning invasion from the north, Cesia and Dubelhrn find themselves caught in a deadly brew.  To survive the plains, to survive the truth is not enough.  Somehow, they must find the determination and courage to bring their discoveries back to the rest of humanity, pitting humans, rhinos, and aliens against each other in a desperate fight to control, not only the planet, but the very galaxy itself!
