About this book

Giant Hearts: Travels in the World of Elephants takes us into the world of the largest land animal on our planet. In this anthology, Jean-Philippe Puyravaud and Priya Davidar have brought together writers – eminent scientists, bestselling authors, veterinary doctors, photographers and artists – who are bound by a common affection for elephants and their desire to halt their extinction. Through articles comprising both personal anecdotes and in-depth research, they bring out the need to adopt a gentler path towards elephants. The book also reminds us that despite the superb advances of science, we still know little about elephants – for instance, their curiosity for colours and shapes, as evidenced by the drawings made by elephants that have been reproduced in this book.

Giants Hearts makes a fervent plea to humans to understand and appreciate other species and reverse the present trend of animal extinction.
