I have just started reading The Elephant Whisperer and I am hooked! Fantastic writing and awesome content that is filled with emotion that you can feel with the turn of every page.

The cover is great! Nothing like a baby elephant to put a smile on your face.

:clap: :D :thumbs_up:

Bought the book on Saturday afternoon and finished it yesterday. I could not put it down, there was always something intriguing. Loved it. The insight into Zulu culture was also very informative.

The book made me think: what is our role on earth really? Where do we fit in? I am sure there is another way of living, i.e. closer to nature and more in tune with the creatures roaming this earth. Maybe it explains that feeling of 'coming home' when driving through the gates at Kruger. Just made me wonder...

Was also given a copy for my birthday. Great reading. Finished it within 3 days.

Quite informative and full of anecdotes.

I was also given a copy of "Game Ranger in Your Backpack" by Megan Emmett and Sean Pattrick. Full of information and worth a read.

I also have read this wonderful book now and as everybody else I can highly reccommend it :dance:
It's exciting and can teach you a lot (not only about Ellies)!

A friend of my brother lent him The Elephant Whisperer and he finished reading it and told me to buy a copy. My copy is sitting on my book shelve now waiting eagerly to be read...just need to finish Bruce Brydon's A Game Ranger Remembers.

I started reading this book last night and brought it to work with me. I had to force myself to put it down because unfortunately I have to work
