Elephants and humans are not very different, Hannah Mumby suggests here, and the commonalities of bonding and development that she uncovers are both surprising and heartwarming. Illustrated with 16 pages of color photographs, this exploration of elephant culture provides an empathetic portrait of these majestic animals, illuminating their personalities and rich emotional lives. Offering insights and anecdotes from her many interactions with pachyderms in the wild, Mumby explains how elephants communicate with one another and demonstrates how memory and trauma affect individual elephants and their interactions with others in their herd, a process that also sheds light on how human societies function.
