Raman Sukumar is a leading naturalist and a key member of 'Project Elephant', a plan set up by the Indian government to protect the elephant along the lines of 'Project Tiger'. This book is a highly readable account of his experiences during ten years of research on the Indian elephant. Anecdotal, but at the same time thoroughly sound in terms of its scholarship, the book looks at the relationship of the Indian elephant to the people with which it shares the land, and the elephants' effects on the environment and the ecology of southern India. It also gives a full account of elephant behavior and the effects of environmental degradation and ivory poaching. This highly readable account will prove fascinating reading for everyone interested in the dramatic story of the Indian elephant and the fight to protect its endangered habitats.
