This is an outstanding and emotionally moving book.It’s about The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee, U.S.A elephants, and there is apparently an “elecam” there, which is terrific because the sanctuary is not open to the public.The story of this sanctuary is told via the lives of its elephants, in particular Shirley, and Jenny.I detest circuses and zoos, and am saddened at t [...]

Interesting discussion of an elephant sanctuary. Good photographs.
