Ever since he was young, Levison Wood has been fascinated by elephants and their fight for survival, and while trekking the Nile he saw these majestic creatures up close. As he proved in books like Walking the Himalayas, Wood never resists the chance to go on an adventure, and so he teams up with local trackers to gain insight into how this iconic species survives, meets the people and tribes living near the elephants' migration routes, and joins the park rangers who protect these goliaths. While discussing the potent threats posed by drought and poaching, Helm also offers an encouraging account of how Botswana has become a safe haven for elephants.
