P.D. Stracey started his career as an elephant catcher but went on to become a stockade officer. His understanding of the animal and its habitat elephant training and management stands unparalleled to date. This book provides a delightful narrative of Stracey's experiences in capturing noosing and doctoring of elephants and hence provides an astute analysis of the animal for conservationists today. His style of writing and depth of knowledge shine out to make this book a must for every naturalist's bookshelf. The elephant has as Stracey explains had a unique cultural association with the people of India for over 4000 years. This outstandingly loveable animal has inspired a rare combination of awe and affection. Man has always harassed elephants to his needs in times of both peace and war. Now in an era of shrinking habitat the elephant faces a bigger than ever threat of extinction. Stracey's wise words hold true at this crucial moment he said that it is up to man the elephant's friend throughout the ages to take decisive steps to ensure its preservation. The elephant has always served man for his benefits and the survival of this beautiful and majestic animal rests on our shoulders today. 228 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 72298
