Everything you need to understand or teach The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony.
“The Elephant Whisperer” is a love story but not at all the in the traditional sense. Lawrence Anthony had a deep love for all animals and proved that he would go to any length to save and protect them. He has written the memoir of his experience with a herd of elephants that no one wanted. Anthony was their last hope. He was offered a herd of elephants free of charge. The sticking point was that they were on the block to be destroyed because they had become violent and unmanageable in the view of their current owners. Anthony could not bear to think of the elephants being destroyed and agreed to take them on. He knew he had to make a connection with the matriarch of the herd. To do so he used the only means of communication he knew of – he started talking to her.
