When South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony was asked to
accept a herd of 'rogue' elephants on his reserve at Thula Thula,
his commonsense told him to refuse. But he was the herd's last
chance of survival - notorious escape artists, they would all be
killed if Lawrence wouldn't take them. He agreed, but before
arrangements for the move could be completed the animals broke out
again and the matriarch and her baby were shot. The remaining
elephants were traumatised and very angry. As soon as they arrived
at Thula Thula they started planning their escape...
As Lawrence battled to create a bond with the elephants and
save them from execution, he came to realise that they had a lot to
teach him about love, loyalty and freedom. Set against the
background of life on the reserve, with unforgettable characters
and exotic wildlife, this is a delightful book that will appeal to
animal lovers everywhere.

Review by: Jean M
This is the most wonderful book written by a truly inspirational man. A true account of life in the African bush, getting to know the deepest emotions if these magnificent and so often misunderstood lords of the bushveld.
The book takes off and keeps you reading from first page to last. It makes you laugh. It makes you cry, but above all, it leaves you astonished at one man's perseverance and dedication to the task at hand.
A really worthwhile read. I feel richer for experiencing it, and the writing made me feel I was there.
Well worth the price!
