About this book

Elephant history has been dominated by periods of brutality and persecution, most notably from the Ivory trade. There are now only five countries with sizeable elephant populations, where a few hundred years ago there were forty-six - before the European hunters arrived. Acclaimed African expert Martin Meredith has written the first full biography of the elephant - wide-ranging, moving and never less than fascinating in his travels through the history and present of `Nature's great masterpiece'.
