PINCOTT, SHARON - THE ELEPHANTS AND I: PURSUING A DREAM IN IN SOUTH AFRICA
Book in great condition - Actually looks new and unread to me - 280 pages. >>> A true story filled with both joy and foreboding, this portrait of Zimbabwe and its wildlife comes from an Australian woman who went as a tourist to Africa and then decided to leave her old life and live permanently in tumultuous Zimbabwe to work with elephants on land bordering Hwange National Park. Not a scientist, she wanted to observe elephant interaction informally, and this moving memoir describes how, in time, she and the elephants developed affectionate relationships with each other. As the beauty and wonder of the park became increasingly threatened by illegal snaring of wildlife and land invaders claimed the territory where her elephant herd roamed, she went into battle for the animals—and this compelling account reveals how she put her own survival at risk. * Rhodesia * *N.B.* If you buy more than one book from me you only pay R 6 postage on each additional book – See what else I have to offer, it might be worth your while.
