If you’ve seen the IMAX movie Born to Be Wild, you know the story of Daphne Sheldrick, the first person ever to successfully hand-rear newborn elephants. This book by Sheldrick recounts her five decades of efforts protecting wildlife in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park and her creation of the David Sheldrick Trust, an elephant rescue organization named after her late husband. This is a warm, heartfelt, and sometimes graphically tragic non-fiction tribute to Africa, where the animals are real and have more personality than the ones you'll find in a Disney movie.
