Summary Ô Elephant Memories Thirteen Years in the Life of an Elephant Family 104 N and ingeniously structured account Raymond Sokolov Wall Street JournalMoss 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 ReviewA prose poem celebrating a species from which we could learn some moral as well as zoological lessons Chicago Tribune. Cynthia Moss uses her years of observation and data on the Amboseli elephants especially one particular family to describe elephant behavior such a migration mating birth and social interaction There is an incredible amount of information packed into this book including whole lineages of elephant families spanning decades I suppose it could get tedious for some but I think it was beautifully done Cynthia Moss comes across as an almost ideal wildlife researcher she s capable of objective observation and systematic research and she discusses difficult topics like conflicts between humans and elephants the ivory trade and culling in a very rational way that considers all viewpoints and possible solutions She does not romanticize or anthropomorphize elephants But she is also recognizes them as uniue individuals and is unashamed of her love for them
