'A book to take readers into another world.' - Caroline Jones AO, presenter, Australian Story 'A raw, honest story that needs to be heard.' - Tony Park, bestselling author of An Empty Coast 'This mesmerizing book is not just about a love of elephants, it is also about the indomitable spirit of someone who followed her passion.' - Cynthia Moss, world-renowned elephant specialist, celebrated in the BBC's Echo of the Elephants In 2001, Sharon Pincott traded her privileged life as a high-flying corporate executive to start a new one with the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe. She was unpaid, untrained, self-funded and arrived with the starry-eyed idealism of most foreigners during early encounters with Africa. For thirteen years - the worst in Zimbabwe's volatile history - this intrepid Australian woman lived in the Hwange bush fighting for the lives of these elephants, forming an extraordinary and life-changing bond with them. Powerfully moving, sometimes disturbing and often very funny, Elephant Dawn is a celebration of love, courage and honour amongst our greatest land mammals. With resilience beyond measure, Sharon earns the supreme right to call them family.

Reviews

This book is a real eye opener to what dangers the volunteers in Zimbabwe face, how beautiful elephants are, the bonds that can be forged between human and pachyderm and sadly, how heart breaking it is when an elephant that is virtually a human family member is ripped away. A great read - have tissues on standby. * Vacations & Travel * This mesmerizing book is not just about a love of elephants, it is also about the indomitable spirit of someone who followed her passion. -- Cynthia Moss, world-renowned elephant specialist, celebrated in the BBC's ECHO OF THE ELEPHANTS A raw, honest story that needs to be heard. -- Tony Park, bestselling author of AN EMPTY COAST A book to take readers into another world. -- Caroline Jones AO, presenter, AUSTRALIAN STORY
