Elephant Memories: Thirteen Years in the Life of an Elephant Family

Cynthia Moss

Publisher: University of Chicago PressFormat: Paperback

Cynthia Moss has studied the elephants in Kenya's Amboseli National Park for over twenty-seven years. Her long-term research has revealed much of what we now know about these complex and intelligent animals. Here she chronicles the lives of the members of the T families led by matriarchs Teresia, Slit Ear, Torn Ear, Tania, and Tuskless. With a new afterword catching up on the families and covering current conservation issues, Moss's story will continue to fascinate animal lovers."One is soon swept away by this 'Babar' for adults. By the end, one even begins to feel an aversion for people. One wants to curse human civilization and cry out, 'Now God stand up for the elephants '"—Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, “New York Times”"Moss speaks to the general reader, with charm as well as scientific authority. . . . An] elegantly written and ingeniously structured account." —Raymond Sokolov, “Wall Street Journal”“Moss tells the story in a style so conversational . . . that I felt like a privileged visitor riding beside her in her rickety Land-Rover as she showed me around the park.” —Sarah Blaffer Hrdy, “New York Times Book Review”“A prose-poem celebrating a species from which we could learn some moral as well as zoological lessons.” —“Chicago Tribune”
