A magical story of resilience, healing, and hope…
Only 3 percent of baby elephants survive when orphaned by poachers who slaughtered their parents for their ivory. Touched by their plight, Dr. Mary Baures, a psychologist expert in treating trauma, traveled to Africa and adopted a baby elephant. Her visit inspired a series of photography safaris during which she captured the strength, grace, and majestic beauty of African wildlife. She chronicled the devastating consequences of the brutal ivory trade, and the joyous recovery of a few orphaned calves. Dr. Baures has now adopted four baby elephants. This book, an unforgettable journey, is their story.

“This wonderfully written and magnificently photographed book about orphan elephants makes us understand the powerful similarities and connections between humans and animals. When we understand this, the slaughter of elephants for ivory becomes a crime against all we aspire to be as human beings.” – Margaret Lazarus, Academy Award–winning filmmaker of Defending Our Lives.
