Elephant Memories: Thirteen Years in the Life of an Elephant Family by Cynthia Moss

October 8th, 2011 | Posted in Books

Amboseli National Park, near Mt. Kilimanjaro in southern Kenya, is home ground to some 600 elephants; this herd has been relatively free from human interference and was a major focus for field study. Moss follows one extended family through 13 years of good times and bad times, observing details of their daily lives; mating, migration, social behavior, births and calves, and family history.
