An Elephant’s Life is a unique and intimate
immersion into the life of the African elephant that blends the immediacy of photography with a deep and passionate understanding of the subject. Here, for the first time, is an up-close and personal look at elephant society, narrated by a leading field biologist who has been researching and photographing these animals in their natural habitat
for nearly two decades.
Merging the visual traditions of photojournalism and the nature documentary with the narrative voice of such classics as Jane Goodall’s Chimpanzees of Gombe, at every turn of the page this remarkable book provides a singularly rich understanding of what life in all of its stages is like for the world’s largest land mammal.
Experience the amazing first steps of a baby elephant, encounter the frustrations and anguish of the coming-of-age male struggling to leave his family, witness the constant vigilance a matriarch exerts to protect her family, and feel the drama of a dominant male trying to hold on to power during times of peace and times of social upheaval.
A one-of-a-kind portrait of a beloved species,
An Elephant’s Life will forever change the way
we see elephants.
An Elephant’s Life is the first book to provide a real sense of an elephant’s life, from birth to death. “An Elephant's Life is . . . a book elephant lovers should add to their libraries, and it’s also a good starting volume for those who have recently discovered just how amazing elephants are.”—Cynthia Moss, Director of Amboseli Trust for Elephants and author of Elephant Memories
“Today there are few elephants living undisturbed in Africa. The human footprint is closing in, destroying habitats, reaping ivory, and threatening elephant survival. The beauty of what is shown in this book may awaken human sentiments that will value elephants in their own right and lead to their survival.”—Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Director of Save the Elephants and co-author of Among the Elephants
“An Elephant’s Life combines [Caitlin O’Connell’s] hard-won scientific understanding with a loving and intimate visual portrayal of the lives of elephants. . . . This book will show you that we’ve just begun to comprehend these complex, emotional creatures.”—Frans Lanting, photographer and author of Eye to Eye
