Sibert Medalist and naturalist Nic Bishop explores the world’s largest land animal -- the ELEPHANT!

Few animals are more impressive than elephants. They are by far the biggest of all land animals. And yet, elephants are more than mighty. They are sensitive and intelligent creatures who live in large, caring family societies run by females. They have extraordinary senses and communicate in complex ways that scientists are only now starting to understand. Elephants play an essential role in the delicate African and Asian ecosystems. Today, elephant populations in both Africa and Asia are being threatened.

Join award-winning author, photographer, and naturalist Nic Bishop as he gives readers an in-depth look at one of the world's smartest and most fascinating animals.
