The present author's wisdom in this crucial area came from hearing stories about the private lives of elephants (of which his family owned seventeen). Dr. Lahiri Choudhury was fed elephant's milk as a child and though he graduated to other liquids by and by those first draughts infused him with at least one passion that might appropriately be termed elephantine. Dhriti K. Lahiri Choudhury grew up in Mymensingh district now in Bangladesh inhabiting a near mythic feudal world of household elephants shikar Indian classical music and good food. The partition of his country ended this lifestyle but not his obsession with elephants. Over seventy years he trawled the forests of lower Assam Barak Valley West Bengal Meghalaya Arunachal Pradesh and Orissa as well as Uttaranchal Mudumalai Bandipur and Periyar. His experience with elephants includes tracking them in undivided Assam penetrating remote areas in pursuit of declared man killing rogues. He surveyed the status and distribution of elephants studied man elephant conflicts and analysed the problems of managing elephants in the wild. He journeyed over thousands of miles of hazardous roads and walked through the north eastern forests of India leaning to read the language of the jungle. His acquaintance with wild elephants some of them man killers was sometimes from as close as a few feet. For those who have wondered where Jim Corbett's descendants are here is the answer. This book is in the best tradition of writing about animals a wildlife memoir peppered with anecdotes shot through with humour and irony perfectly combining story telling and scholarship. 238 pp. Seller Inventory # 60825
