Equally accessible to young adults and old adults alike, this book of Caitlin O'Connell's 19 years of Elephant research in the wild combines her husband's gorgeous photographs with surprise after surprise: scientific breakthroughs by O'Connell herself that demonstrate, among other facts, the astonishing way Elephants communicate not only through their infrasonic forehead rumbles but by the specialized listening cells in the pads of their feet. Inexpensive and packed with information, this is a MUST-HAVE BOOK for anyone interested in the African Elephant.
Interesting, with a lot of facts. Easy to read. A good book for anyone interested in knowing more about elephants than what is at the zoo. They are very intelligent animals, they show emotion and are altruistic and more. Wonderful color pictures. Addresses the poaching problem and the possible extinction of elephants if something is not done.
