  • Description or summary of the book: For more than a decade, Sharon Pincott has lived in the Hwange bush among The Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe: a celebrated clan of wild elephants that she is devoted to and will do anything to protect. She has formed one of the most remarkable relationships with wild, free-roaming elephants ever documented, yet her battles to keep them safe never seem to end. One minute she’s cherishing incredibly intimate encounters with these gentle giants, the next she’s accused of being a spy and then her name appears on a Zimbabwe Police wanted-persons list. While things often seem to go from bad to worse, this passionate wildlife conservationist relentlessly perseveres, in the face of overwhelming odds, to stick by the elephants she so obviously loves. Written with engaging humour and warmth and a deep, tangible love of Africa’s wildlife, Sharon recounts the enchanting times that make her life in the wilds bearable, as well as some of the preposterous incidents that force her to question her sanity for staying in Zimbabwe. Succeeding her highly praised book, The Elephants and I, this captivating collection of bush tales offers a further glimpse into the wonders, and grim realities, of choosing a life less ordinary, where the species that you look out for is different from your own.
