    LAWRENCE ANTHONY is an acclaimed conservationist and founder of The Earth Organization. He received the UN's Earth Day award for his work in Baghdad. He lives in Zululand, South Africa.

    GRAHAM SPENCE is a journalist and editor. Originally from South Africa, he lives in England. Together they also wroteBabylon's Ark: the Incredible Wartime Rescue of the Baghdad Zoo.

    Lawrence Anthony devoted his life to animal conservation, protecting the world's endangered species. Then he 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 memoir 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, Anthony's unrelenting efforts at animal protection and his remarkable connection with nature will inspire animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        I am an animal lover. A friend recently sent me a story about this gentleman's passing and how the elephants came to the refuge thereafter, which took folks by surprise. Folks seem to think the powerful bond this man and the elephants had played a part in the elephants making an appearance, which was a long journey for them. One has to ask why would the elephants make an appearance at the time they did, making one wonder about the powerful bonds and instincts humans and animals sometimes share.

      • A:

        Niece LOVES elephants and this is a true story. Nice subject matter for someone who loves these large animals.
