That elephants are intelligent, sentient beings is common knowledge, but so much about their day-to-day lives and abilities remains unknown. How do they communicate with one another over seemingly impossible distances? How do males spend their lives once they have left their mother's herds? And how much do they really remember?
In a lyrically written and deeply personal account of time spent living and working among these gentle giants, Hannah Mumby reverently describes her own elephant encounters, alongside an exploration of the most up-to-date discoveries about their lives. Learn how elephants live, travel, have sex, raise children and relate to one another, and gain a sense of how they think and feel. Once you begin to understand elephants as individuals, you'll discover that despite to understand elephants as individuals, you'll discover that despite appearances, they're not all that different from us.
