Description:

An absorbing, beautifully written memoir focusing on one of the most amazing animals that has ever lived. 'Elephantoms: Tracking the elephant' is above all a celebration of scientific and intuitive wonder, a work of mystery and delight. Watson's insights and speculations are dazzling. Part memoir, part lament, the book in the end reads as a prayer not only for the survival of a species but also for the emergence of a new way of being and thinking, a profoundly different vision of life itself.
