An fascinating glimpse of elephant society
on 8 March 2001
This is one of the best books on elephants I have ever read. In fact, it is perhaps one of the best books on the structure of animal society and the individuals that constitute that society.
Detailed and scientific, yet well-written and touching, this book will keep you gripped as it recounts the fascinating story of the elephants of the Amboseli.
All the elephants have distinct personalities and as we follow them through birth, life, death, joy, sadness and laughter, we come to realise that we are all far more similar than we think. A truly wonderful book.
