In Asia, elephants have been domesticated, worshipped, sanctified. In Africa they were respected as king of the beasts, but feared and shunned. In the West they are famed for their legendary strength, wisdom and benevolence. Now we can follow the whole marvellous story of the elephant, from the extinct mammoths of the last Ice Age to the present day battle for survival as they are hunted for their ivory.

With nearly two hundred illustrations, historical documents, legends and science this is a remarkable small book for the greatest of animals!
