Last Chain On Billie: How One Extraordinary Elephant Escaped the Big Top based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The book not only follows the harsh life of one individual circus elephant, but it supports the story with historical facts and glimpses into how elephants were viewed and treated throughout history. It's a touching story and an education into the lives of captive elephants all at the same time. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in elephants, likes a good story, or wants to learn more.
Impeccably researched on Elephant history. Wonderful book on Elephants, I live here in TN near the Sanctuary. I loved reading the history of the elephants at the Sanctuary. I will never look at a circus ad or commercial the same again, I feel ashamed I ever went to a performance with my child. I could not put this book down, its left me thinking long after I read the last paragraph. Its sad, heartbreaking but some of the elephants have the storybook ending of happily ever after. I could only wish they all would have a sanctuary waiting for them.
