About this title:

Synopsis: Delta's story is told in the first person narrative coercing the reader to anthropomorphize, to empathize, and to put themselves in her shoes, so to speak. An Asian elephant whose family was culled in the 1930's, she takes you through the life of an individual who is normally not thought of twice: a performing elephant. Throughout the story, appear hints of time and history sugar-coated by music. Character names are hybrid names of real noted elephants and elephant-noted people, presenting the reader with a challenge to see and think beyond mere words. From the author who was also compelled to pen the children s story Tyke and the Elephant Angel, this lifelong tale is designed for young adult readers and above.

From the Author: For those savvy readers and especially elephant-loving readers, there are hidden references and names hidden in the text. For example, a character named Mossy is a variation of renown elephant researcher Cynthia Moss; the 'Cry-man' auditorium is described in 1961 with a man singing in a low voice about hanging his head crying = Johnny Cash singing at the Grand Ole Opry; A man who electrocuted an elephant on Coney Island = Thomas Edison electrocuting Topsy the elephant; the name Delta is a hybrid of two famous elephants who made it to a Sanctuary: Delhi and Lota = Delta. It could be described as Black Beauty meets Forrest Gump with a twist of a small love story within a much bigger story formula.
