A YA adaptation of an amazing true story. Conservationist L. Anthony was asked to accept an unpredictable and troubled herd of elephants on his reserve in South Africa. Without his help, they would be destroyed. Anthony had very little experience with these majestic beasts, but with grit and determination he becomes part of the elephant family with both triumphant and tragic results. Gorgeous writing coupled with color photos. ~ Reviewed by Gail Cosgriff
