Description

When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a herd of "rogue" wild elephants on his Thula Thula game reserve in Zululand, his common sense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last chance of survival: they would be killed if he wouldn't take them. In order to save their lives, Anthony took them in. In the years that followed he became a part of their family. And as he battled to create a bond with the elephants, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom. The Elephant Whisperer is a heartwarming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account of Anthony's experiences with these huge yet sympathetic creatures. Set against the background of life on an African game reserve, with unforgettable characters and exotic wildlife, it is a delightful book that will appeal to animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere.

Professional reviews

"In 1999, Lawrence Anthony welcomed some troubled wild elephants to his game reserve. Simon Vance's British voice takes on a gentle reminiscing tone that makes for an inviting account of a man's growing relationship with the elephants. Vance captures Anthony's concern early on when an escape almost cost him the herd and his joy as he realized the elephants were becoming accustomed to--and even welcoming--his presence. Occasionally, there are lighter moments, as when a kitten fearlessly tangles with the elephants. Listeners will find themselves rooting for Anthony--and his herd as well. J.A.S.
