Shirley, a circus elephant hurt and unable to perform, was left at a zoo for many lonely years. She is now traveling to the Elephant Sanctuary, 100 acres of Tennessee land where sick, old, and needy elephants can wander free in the nation's first natural-habitat elephant refuge, founded by the author and a friend in 1995. This is a beautifully written, compelling story of a conscientious drive to care for these animals in a humane way, and to provide a home for them that is as close to the wild as possible. Photographs of and text about Shirley and her new friends show the intricacies of elephant society. A wonderful introduction to the growing need to provide for responsible animal care.
