This was Nonfiction on Elephant preservation in Africa The story that the authors share takes place mostly in the 1980 s It was kind of fascinating watching their life unfold They were dedicated to living with and protecting African wildlife This book centered on lions then elephants It was so sad that there was so much poaching going on Such tragedy but poaching was a living for the localsStrong and old tradition are strong and often times heavy anchors that keeps people from moving into the future That is the message that I got when the authors tried to get the locals to care about conservation when it came to elephants There was a line that I said something like hungry people don t care about conservation I m paraphrasing there but it conveyed much I enjoyed the message in this one so 4 stars
