This is an amzing book - - I had a very hard time putting it down. I would love to visit Thula Thula and see the original elepahnt herd as well as the newer herd members. I was absolutely heartbroken when I found out that Lawrence Anthony has passed away. It is great that his family is keeping Thula Thula running as a wildlife preserve. I highly recommend this book to any animal lover.

I found out about this book through an email that was sent to me about the author and his unusual bond with elephants. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. It's a true story, well written and one I'll read over and over again. I loved it!

Because of a short article in Reader's Digest mentioning what the elephants did after the author of this book passed away, I put the book on my Nook and I enjoyed reading it. There were laughs and tears and I intend to read the Baghdad Zoo book he wrote also. I also learned alot about conservation efforts in Africa and how they are trying to protect many animals killed for their tusks or horns, not for any other reason.

If you love elephants, this book will amaze and inspire you. Mr. Anthony's personal story of his life with these unbelievable creatures is one that you will never forget. Best book I've read in many years!

Wonderful true story, written with compassion, affection and appreciation for these amazing animals -- and actually all of African wildlife. When I started this book, I had intended to read only the Prologue, but was so quickly drawn into this incredible story that in no time I had read over 100 pages in one sitting! Bridging the gulf between two species always makes for a remarkable story, but this is also great storytelling.

This book is very insightful into the lives of elephants. Their intelligence is remarkable and the way the author was above in interact with them was particularly good. The ups and downs of running a reserve is totally eye opening and the book makes one want to keep the reserves going for life.

If you're an animal lover you must read this! Wonderful book, inspiring, touching and whatever you thought you knew about elephants probably doesn't even come close to how much you will know after reading this. You will never look at them in the same way again.

A magnificent book. Beautifully written. Touching, suspensful, sometimes disturbing and highly informative. You will never forget it.

Well written and engaging. I did not want to put the book down. I now want to go to Africa and stay at Thula Thula.

This book was way more than I expected. There were times I was on the edge of my seat, times when I had to stop and get a tissue, and times I laughed out loud. Get it. Read it. It is marvelously written.

Anthony lives on an African game preserve. This beautiful book tells of his successes and failures to re-introduce a family of wild elephants into their natural habitat. There are some cute/humorous moments and some tear inducing moments, but it is well written and fast paced. I rarely read non-fiction. I'm a contemporary romance girl, but as a lover of elephants, this one really appealed to me.

What a gift Lawrence Anthony has given the world. Men and women alike will read with awe at the knowledge of Elephants and the patience L. Anthony had with them. Might we humans find that we can dot hat with more animals of the wild? It takes a compassion and gift of a lifetime to connect as he did. There are so many questions unanswered. Even with Mr Anthony's death, the elephants came to pay respects. We need to study and learn from them.

Well written! This is a heart warming story of elephants, human politics and the game preserves of South Africa. I added Thula Thula to my bucket list

At first I was not sure I wanted to read a book about elephants. It was a very good book and I now want to go visit the reserve because it was fascinating. Learning about elephants the native tribes made it real. If you are looking for a different book to read this in one to pick up.
