The Elephant Whisperer; My Life with the Herd in the African Wild
by Lawrence Anthony and Graham Spence
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.
I apologize for the very beat up cover of this book, it’s my own personal book and it’s well loved. It’s one of my favourite books ever and I definitely recommend a read.
