The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony
This is a wonderful true story about a man who runs a game preserve in South Africa.  He is asked to take on a herd of wild and unruly elephants that have terrorized their current owner to the point of wanting the animals destroyed.  This is a wonderful account of the love one man had for these magnificent creatures and how he was able to gain the trust of the matriarch and therefore, the whole herd. And in the end, it is the story of how he learned far more from the elephants than they did from him.

This has been one of my favorite books.This gripping bestseller, first published in 1966, has continued to captivate readers with its wide-ranging yet intimate portrait of an America sundered by racial conflict. David Champlin is a black man born into poverty in Depression-era New Orleans who makes his way up the ladder of success, only to sacrifice everything to lead his people in the civil rights movement. Sara Kent is the white girl who loves David from the moment she first sees him, and who struggles against his belief that a marriage for them would be wrong in the violent world he has to confront.for a long time.  Recently republished.
