  • Cynthia Moss has studied the elephants in Kenya's Amboseli National Park for over twenty-sevenyears. Her long-term research has revealed much of what we now know about these complex andintelligent animals. Here she chronicles the lives of the members of the T families led by matriarchsTeresia, Slit Ear, Torn Ear, Tania, and Tuskless. With a new afterword catching up on the familiesand covering current conservation issues, Moss's story will continue to fascinate animal lovers.
