From Library Journal:

No one needs another ivory trinket: the world needs elephants more. This is Norton's thesis, and his informative text and exciting color photographs do a fine job of supporting this premise. The photographs are large, appealing, and compelling. While the text is redundant in places, the overall effect is emphasis, not unbearable repetition. Norton includes anecdotes of his safaris, a brief elephant natural history, descriptions of elephant neighbors, and stories from park managers and rangers. He also discusses the complex issues of ivory politics and elephant conservation and explains why it's not so simple to just stop the killing. Recommended for all collections.

From Publishers Weekly:

Photojournalist Norton ( The Mountain Gorilla ), widely traveled in Africa, reports on dwindling elephant populations in Kenya and Tanzania. Tracing efforts to combat poaching, he addresses the politics and economics of ivory commerce. Lavish photographs offer a splendid tour of East African national parks, some private reserves and an elephant orphanage. As he reviews the development of the elephant and its niche among other indigenous wildlife species, Norton turns to such authorities as Cynthia Moss, Richard Leakey and Iain Douglas-Hamilton to discuss the elephant's uncertain future. A persuasive testament to the value of this magnificent animal and the need to assure its future.
