The Elephant Whisperer (Young Readers Adaptation)
My Life with the Herd in the African Wild
Author: Lawrence Anthony and Graham Spence; adapted by Thea Feldman
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.
