"Anthony's patient attempts to rehabilitate elephants―and the ensuing accounts of intelligence and emotional connection from these behemoths―are moving and fascinating." ―Kirkus Reviews
"Anthony’s respect and compassion for all living things is evident throughout the narrative, and he pulls no punches when describing the wonders and the sorrows of life on a game reserve. A tender look at unlikely partnerships, and a wildlife adventure that reads like fiction." ―Booklist
The Elephant Whisperer (St. Martin's Press Edition):
“In my thirty-five years of studying man/animal communication I have met only a few individuals who have the ability to enter into the metaphysical realm of the exotic animal. Lawrence Anthony has been there and back. His wonderfully written book The Elephant Whisperer is a true reflection of his ability to be one of the pachyderms.” ―Ralph Helfer, author of Modoc
“Anthony has made a difference in the lives of many magnificent animals who otherwise would have been lost to the world. When you're feeling down and out and defeated and ready to give up, read this inspiring book and share it widely with others.” ―Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals
“A lovingly written tale of close encounters, some beautiful and some frightening, with humans and nonhumans alike. Anthony's story of his trials and tribulations in preserving a herd of African elephants is a parable for the continent.” ―Irene M. Pepperberg, author of Alex & Me
“An engaging and vividly personal account, The Elephant Whisperer invites you in, as confidant and confederate, from the first page and holds you rapt to the very last. A compelling reminder of the power and mysteries of the natural world, Thula Thula's elephants are lucky to have a friend like Lawrence Anthony.” ―Amelia Thomas, author of The Zoo on the Road to Nablus
“The Elephant Whisperer is every bit as much a page-turner as a novel. … Anyone who remembers Born Free, a personal story of tamed East African lions, will hope this book, too, is destined for the screen.” ―San Francisco Book Review
