About this book

Raised together in a small German circus town, Modoc the elephant and Bram his faithful boyhood companion and later trainer, formed a bond that lasted their entire lives. However, Modoc was sold behind Bram's back and vanished for more than 20 years. Ralph Helfer is a well-known animal trainer, and founder of Eden International. He owned Modoc for the last 20 years of her life and witnessed the joyful reunion of Modoc and Bram.

Once I started this incomparable story, I couldn't put it down, and I cannot get it out of my mind--nor will I ever. The message of what can be accomplished by training through affection and joy will thrill all animal lovers.-- Betty White"Once in a while, a book comes along to prove that wonderful friendships can occur between the animal kingdom and mankind. Ralph Helfer has done it with Modoc."-- "San Antonio Express-News""Heartwarming, captivating...a beautifully true story that will make you think twice about the incredible and very real feelings of elephants, and probably the greatest love story ever told."-- "African Sun-Times""A captivating tale."-- "Publishers Weekly"
