Waiting On Wednesday

My Waiting On Wednesday pick for today is The Elephant Whisperer: My Life with the Herd in the African Wild by Lawrence Anthony and Graham Spence.

I love elephants...especially stories about them that are true acc
ounts. This book sounds wonderful!


It had been nearly a century since elephants had lived in Zulu - land, South Africa, where Lawrence Anthony founded his wildlife reserve. Yet one day a surprise phone call changed all that. A troubled, unpredictable herd needed a new home. In order to save their lives, Lawrence took them in. And in the years that followed he has become a part of their family. The Elephant Whisperer is a heartwarming, exciting, funny, and sometimes sad account of his experiences with these huge yet sympathetic creatures. He tells of hair-raising fights with poachers, of elephants as surprise dinner guests, of raising a baby elephant in his home, and other incredible stories that will amaze animal-lovers everywhere.

Comment is not related to your post, but I can't find your email address. I'm having a terrible time getting the last award to copy to put on my site. So sorry. Also for the delay in thanking you for the recognition.
