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 - dangerous and unpredictable, they were also notorious escape artists and would be killed if Anthony wouldn't take them. He agreed to give them a home, but before they could be moved they escaped again and the matriarch and her baby were shot. The remaining elephants arrived at Anthony's reserve traumatized and very angry. They escaped almost immediately ... right into the waiting guns of poachers and park rangers. As Anthony battled to create a bond with the elephants and save them from execution, he came to realize that they had a great deal to teach him about life, loyalty and freedom.
Set against the background of life on an African game reserve, with unforgettable characters and exotic wildlife, this is a delightful book that will appeal to animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere.
