  • I adore this book for what it is and what it stands for. I am obviously impartial as I have visited Africa in my twenties specifically to see wild elephants because they are nature's most precious animal to me and their whole being and behavior fascinates me. I really just can't get enough. This is Lawrence Anthony's story of tending to a herd of "troublesome" elephants on his reserve in Thula Thula in South Africa. The short chapters move the story pretty quickly but by the second half after th [...]


  • I actually really enjoyed this book--though there were sad moments and times when the focus shifted from elephants to other adventures on the reserve. But it is a beautiful story about the unique bond between elephants and humans and it highlights a true respect for the beauty, wildness, and empathy of the animal kingdom and especially the particular uniqueness of the South African reserves and land. We love what we know and I think reading books such as these is important to teaching all humans [...]


  • This book was recommended to me by my parents who lived for 18 months near this preserve and visited I️t. They loved the area and that certainly colored my early excitement for this book, since I usually do not gravitate toward animal books. The elephants were fascinating and Lawrence and his wife are true heroes.


  • Gives a clear view of life spent caring for elephants and other wild animals on a preserve in South Africa. Lawrence Anthony’s stories about the elephants of Thula Thula (“peace and tranquility” in Zulu) were fascinating and sometimes heartbreaking. For tweens and teens (and adults!) who love animals and want to learn about the life of a wildlife conservationist.


  • a wonderful account of day-to-day life in wildlife management, and the behavior of elephants and their relationship with humans and each other. I am saddened to learn that the author, who felt so much empathy with the animals and risked his life several times to protect them from both poachers and legal dealers/buyers, has passed away.


  • A beautiful book, as far as ideology regarding all living things and especially with the author’s love of Elephants. But, not especially well written, and for me more information regarding the care and feeding of Elephants than I ever wanted to know. Tedious most of the time and were it not for a Book Club selection I would have quit and not read the beautiful last chapter.


  • Rogue elephants. What do you do with them? Well, you either kill them or you call the elephant whisperer and hope he can work his magic on them so they don't have to die. This was the case in 1999 for Lawrence Anthony who was living and working on a reserve in South Africa. He was the elephant whisperer in question and was given just one chance to save the lives of 9 elephants that would otherwise be shot and killed.A touching memoir about fascinating animals, their interactions with each other [...]


  • I totally was invested in this beautiful book! Such a lovely journey of one man and his aim to help animals survive! I love elephants and recommend this book to anyone. Truly a lovely read for any animal lover out there! 🐘



  • what a beautiful book. the last few pages had me crying tears of sorrow and happiness! I would like to read the full adult version also. I was able to read in one day as I found it so interesting



  • This book was fantastic! It was entertaining to read and since I love elephants, this was a good book for me. It had it's happy moments and it's sad moments and I was REALLY sad when Thula Thula and Mnumzane died. I loved this book and I think a lot of people should read it.
