From the Publisher:

Elephants of Africa contains reproductions of twenty-four outstanding pastel paintings of the African elephant in representative habitats throughout the continent. In addition, there are superb color cameos and eloquent pencil drawings of both elephants and the many other creatures-some of them rare or endangered-that share the elephant's varied environments: the Zaire peacock, the gorilla, the bongo, the zebra duiker, the Lord Derby eland, the lion, the leopard, and man. The text is both informative and scientifically accurate, yet written in a personal and anecdotal style. It is also realistic, squarely facing all the pertinent issues of elephant biology and conservation: the decline of the elephant in some areas because of poaching and the increase of human population; the ivory trade; the over-population of elephants in some sanctuaries; the conflict between elephant and man-all these issues are discussed by one of the leading authorities on African elephants. A magnificently illustrated work on the African elephant.
