Simon Trevor follows an elephant from almost the moment of its birth through the seasons as it grows and learns, and its herd experiences good times and draught. It ends with Ahmed of Marsabit, the fabulous tusker who was the only Kenyan elephant ever to be protected by Presidential Decree. Lovingly and exquisitely photographed.
