Publisher Comments:

“Astonishing...You may be tempted after the last page to sell all your possessions and join [Sheldricks] cause.”—The Boston Globe

The first person to successfully raise newborn elephants, Dame Daphne Sheldrick has saved countless African animals from certain death. In this indelible and deeply heartfelt memoir, Daphne tells of her remarkable career as a conservationist and introduces us to a whole host of orphans—including Bushy, a liquid-eyed antelope, and the majestic elephant Eleanor. Yet she also shares the incredible human story of her relationship with David Sheldrick, the famous Tsavo National Park warden whose death inspired the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the orphans nursery, where Daphne works to this day. From her tireless campaign to preserve Kenyas wildlife to the astonishing creatures she befriended along the way, Love, Life, and Elephants is alive with compassion and humor, providing rare insight into the life of one of the worlds most fascinating women.

About the Author

Dame Daphne Sheldrick is a Kenyan author, conservationist, and expert in animal husbandry, particularly the raising and reintegrating of orphaned elephants into the wild. From 1955 to 1976, Sheldrick was co-warden of Kenyas Tsavo National Park.

I loved this book! It held my interest to the end. I didn't realize how important the emotions of elephants are! We need to help them survive.
