en Limba Engleză Paperback – 03 Jan 2013
Daphne Sheldrick's best-selling love story of romance, life and elephants, An African Love Story: Love, Life and Elephants is an incredible story from Africa's greatest living conservationist.
A typical day for Daphne involves rescuing baby elephants from poachers; finding homes for orphan elephants, all the while campaigning the ever-present threat of poaching for the ivory trade.
An African Love Story is the incredible memoir of her life. It tells two stories - one is the extraordinary love story which blossomed when Daphne fell head over heels with Tsavo Game Park and its famous warden, David Sheldrick. The second is the love story of how Daphne and David, who devoted their lives to saving elephant orphans, at first losing every infant under the age of two until Daphne at last managed to devise the first-ever milk formula which would keep them alive.

Recenzii

Compulsively readable...the more you hear about elephants from her, the more you wonder why they don't rule the world
An enchanting memoir...Baby birds, antelopes, elephants, rhinos and a civet cat all pass through Sheldrick's life
Wonderfully candid
Absorbing, moving...paints a vivid picture of an extraordinary life in the bush that will delight everyone
Moving and magical...a fascinating story...touching, funny and written with warmth and compassion
Inspirational. A heart-warming read for anyone interested in wildlife and conservation
Africa has never been more vividly described...I read it straight through and it nearly broke my heart...her warnings about the decline of wildlife should be heeded the world over
