Staff Reviews

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. — Gail Cosgriff


When Lawrence Anthony was asked to accept a rogue herd of elephants in his reserve in South Africa, it was the last chance for these elephants. If Anthony didn't take them, they would be shot. But he had no experience with elephants at all. What was he to do?

Take them on, of course

What follows is an exciting and heartwarming series of adventures, in which Anthony learns about elephants and becomes part of their family. Full of both triumph and tragedy, The Elephant Whisperer, is a fascinating and unforgettable account of living with the majestic elephant.
