5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifted My Heart
Having fallen in love with Africa 2 years on a trip to Tanzania, I was some what shy from reading another persons love story with the continent as thoughts of possible doubt would crept into my mind. But after reading this book I not only have fallen in love with Africa more, but now also Daphne herself. She is a beautiful writer and has a magnificent style, which I can...

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat dull
The early part of this book is worthy but somewhat dull to read-perfect childhood, perfect schooling etc etc. Unfortunately that doesn't make for exciting "let's turn the page" stuff. As we get into the elephant rescue it perks up but overall this is a bit of a slog to get through which is a pity as Daphne Sheldrick is a wonderful person and has done amazing work...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story which shows what it was like moving to ..., 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Amazing story which shows what it was like moving to Africa from Britain many years ago when wildlife was in abundance before humans showed their evil side. A very emotional, funny and enjoyable read which any animal lover will adore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Story of an African farm - transposed., 3 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being an African myself ( South African ) I have found that I long for Africa since leaving to live in the UK. The work that Daphne is doing is phenomenal , that she has shared her story with us is brave and honest. I would love to have lived the life Daphne has , we place so much emphasis on living in the "world" that we forget the real things in life - we forget to live. Daphne has never forgotten. Africa never lets you forget. Loved the accounts of Kenya , the people and the struggle for survival and sustainability , loved the accounts of the animals and shared the pain of the poaching and killing. Grateful to have read this.
