A Much Informed Approachmuch informed approach saving the elephant and finding better ways to support efforts that would see Africans living successfully side by side with these amazing non humansThe book ends n a promising note that would prove to be misguided This is so mostly because Elephant Memories was completed prior to the greedy initiatives to dismantle r cripple the Convention n International Trade in Endangered Species CITES in 1997 which was followed by a massive increase in poaching and the ivory trade Since 1997 elephant populations have plummeted across Africa and many populations are no longer feasible in any long term sense Moss does make mention Canada of this event in her afterword but she would not have been able to predict the scalef catastrophe that was to followV S Pritchett nce wroteIf the elephant vanishedthe loss to human laughter wonder and tenderness would be a calamityMy fear is that day may be coming soon and childhood wonders and adult respect will be lost upon an extinct species My heart breaks and my rage boils ver at the thought This book was interesting because it s always interesting to learn about the habits and behaviors Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, of another species especiallyne as grand and magnificent as the African elephant The writing was competent but not DogFace overly engaging Many partsf this book read like slightly beefed up field notes than like a story What You Owe Me of elephant life I found myself reading itut f a sense f duty I started it so I have to finish it than because I couldn t wait to get back into itStill I know a lot about elephants and about the situation in that particular part f Kenya Amboselli Park than I did before reading this book Not a waste f time just not the best use f my reading time Well I learned a lot about elephants from this book It s written by Cynthia Moss who spent 13 years living alongside several families f wild african elephants I was drawn to it because elephants are very intelligent creatures with complex social lives but are unlike primates in some ways When I read about chimpanzee behavior it never seems like there s much difference between them and us Shining City other than the amountf time we spend rationalizing what we do I enjoyed this book a lot it was informative without feeling cold and scientific The author gets the necessary bits Blind Spots of biology in but the focus always remainsn the living elephants and their story Even though the protagonists aren t human and in some ways differ from usi d say their malefemale relationships are unlike A Boy and A Bear in a Boat ours but that dependsn who you are their intelligence playfulness and SOS outpouringf emotion
Is Easy To Relate To I Loved This Book Mosseasy to relate to I loved this book Moss 13 years in Amboseli National Park following elephants and St. Johns Wort observing their interactions their behaviors how they handle everything from birth to death What happens during a drought Rather than a dry scientific paper this is told with the emotionf a novel and you come to love her friends Slit Ear Teresia Tuskless and the whole crew She suffered through the inevitable deaths and gave us a peek at the joyful births At the end you feel you really have a feeling for the lives The Roman Family of these magnificent creatures There is uite a bit about ivory poaching but since the book ends in 1986 with a postscript written in 1999 and much has been doing to try to eradicate poaching that information is not really informativether than historically For anyone who loves elephants I highly recommend this readable fun informative book.
