Publisher Description

If elephants could tell just one story, it would be the story of Mud, a young elephant cow orphaned at birth and blessed with visionary powers. Mud’s life on the African plain is changed forever when she and her adopted family are forced by prolonged drought to linger at one of the few remaining watering holes. The herd is ambushed there by ivory poachers, who kill almost all the cows and their young. The traumatized survivors, including a pregnant Mud, set out in search of the talismanic white bone that can lead them to a paradise free from human savagery.

the White Bone

one of the best books I ever read. There is a wonderful understanding of the elephants,
The book is written from the elephants point of view a thing I don't usually like (talking animals)
but this one really works.
