What an amazing gift! This book was given to me by my son and his girlfriend. There are few wildlife books that excite me. They are all the same and most author's writing style don't engage me in the way that Howard Blight did with this masterpiece!!!

The book is written in a delightful anthromorphic fashion which gives you a glimpse of the life, mind and emotion of those beloved beasts....

Get the book, as I will never be able to do it justice - after all those characters (and they are real - you will recognise and associate with them! :wink: ) did not have to shuffle mattresses in a cramped space....

You might even want to Google the book - it gives you delightful morsels and excerpts from the book.

They have lots more heartwarming and terrifying stories to tell!!

You cannot be without a copy of this book if you are an elephant lover! :wink:

And no!, I am not employed by the publisher - I just recognise a gem when I see it!

Looks like most forumites don't want to be delighted by a book wonderfully written! What a pity. This one is a gem!

Just found this thread. I read the book a few years back. I enjoyed it very much, but have since lent it out and it's not been returned :(

I am an elephant lover; I will look this book up

I read a book called: - The Elephant and the Cowboy, it is a true story.
The Cowboy and His Elephant is the touching account of the incredible kindness and love shown by a real-life American cowboy toward an orphaned African elephant baby named Amy. The cowboy watched Amy grow and enjoy life until she was able to leave his ranch. Amy may have left the cowboys life, but she never left his heart. This is a story of mutual friendship, of genuine love and compassion.
