Audio Book Summary

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.The Elephant Whisperer is a heartwarming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account 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, it is a delightful book that will appeal to animal lovers and adventurous souls everywhere.

    A Beautiful story conveyed through a man that has had a life long passion for all animals. The book isn't only a wild ride of situations i couldn't even imagine but ever step of the way I learned so much. I already had an idea of how amazing mother nature was....this book has driven that appreciation that much farther.
