Summary
  • It had been nearly a century since elephants had lived in Southern Zululand, South Africa, where Lawrence Anthony founded his Thula Thula wildlife reserve. Yet one day a phone call changed all that. A troubled, unpredictable herd needed a new home. In order to save their lives, Lawrence took them in, and in the years that followed found that they had a lot to teach him about life, loyalty, and freedom. He tells of hair-raising fights with poachers, of elephants as surprise dinner guests, of raising a baby elephant in his home, and other stories.--From publisher description
  • Anthony relates a heartwarming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account of his experiences with a herd of troubled elephants that found refuge in his South African wildlife reserve
