Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived by Ralph Helfer
Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived

Melinda Griffith, January 2, 2013

This is the 4th elephant book I have read and it is far and away the best. This story is bordering on so unbelievable, so compelling,so chilling and so thought provoking on animal intelligence, you find yourself unable to begin a new book as your thoughts keep going back to this story.
I was trashed for almost a month; only reading periodicals and such as I could not put the thoughts of Modoc's adventures out of my mind. A wonderful recommendation from my son as a 'must read' that I pass along to others to revel,cry and rejoice in!
