About this book

Traces the years of research and adventure that became an amazing quest to rediscover an animal long thought extinct. In 1987 rumours began to filter out of Nepal that tribesman had seen a massive elephantine creatures in their traditional hunting grounds. From footprints and rare sightings, evidence was built up until a full exploration was mounted, and so began an extraordinary catalogue of exploration and intrepid jungle adventure that took the small team to the heart of a legend. Illustrated with never before seen photographs of the giant elephants and the expeditions, this book is an accessible travel account with a serious conservation message.
