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: 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. Set against the background of life on an African game reserve, "The Elephant Whisperer" is a heart-warming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account of Anthony's experiences with these huge yet sympathetic creatures.
