Through the lens of Rowe's relationships with two Kenyan conservationistsWangari Maathai and Daphne Sheldrickthis book surveys a number of prejudices that many of us who are fortunate to be born with the privileges attached to our skin color, sex, and access to resources don't like to deal with: race, misogyny, and the legacy of empire. By examining the two women's memoirs (Unbowed and Love, Life, and Elephants), both of which were launched following talks at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, these metaphorical elephants in the room are combined with a study of the exploitation of actual elephants on the continent of Africa, and the iterations of memory that are disclosed or hidden in the writing of memoirs and the collecting of bones for museums.

Aristotle characterized the elephant as “the beast which passeth all others in wit and mind” and the animal has long figured in cultural artifacts, even on continents it has never inhabited. Now Elephant provides an engaging look at the elephant’s long legacy. The image of the elephant can be found throughout world cultures as a symbol of intelligence, strength, and loyalty. Wylie draws on a rich array of examples to document that symbolic power, ranging from symbols of the Hindu god of wisdom, Ganesh, to the beloved children’s works Dumbo and Babar the Elephant. Turning to the elephant’s biological history, Wylie describes the three remaining species—the African Bush Elephant, African Forest Elephant, and the Asian Elephant—and the controversial efforts for elephant conservation. With ivory poaching and human encroachment into the animal’s natural habitats, Wylie argues that we face a uniquely poignant conservation crisis in which elephants and humans both unsustainably consume limited natural resources. A compelling new entry in the Animal series, Elephant will be necessary for every animal lover’s bookshelf.

Welcome to Ludwigs Adventures! Since my two daughters heard the stories from Ludwig the elephant, Norbert the rhino and their friends every night in form of a freely told bedtime story, both pachyderms have almost become an integral part of our family. And because these two always took good care not only as "protection animals" in the nocturnal dream adventures of our daughters, but also as good examples of exemplary behaviour and almost always went with best by example, the binding with them grew further. This also drove strange flowers when for example our Great (when she had just turned 3), with full conviction stated that she now no longer needs her pacifiers because her friend Ludwig indeed needed no pacifier, too. The story of how it came about this, perhaps give room for another book. Well, because the relationship with the two grew stronger, the thought of one of their stories just grew until it was times to start painting. This is how it came to this first book of Ludwig. What is it about? The book deals with the epic tales of Ludwig and his pals, about a small elephant named Ludwig and about a small part of his large circle of friends such as "Nuhir" - the jumpy mouse and "Huhu" - the anxious owl. In this story, Ludwig helps Nuhir and Huhu to identify their fears and to finally defeat them. Once on a night around the campfire the owl Huhu , frightened by a thunderstorm disappeared. Ludwig and Nuhir on the search for her, meet a wide variety of "threats" and "fears", which all turn out to be unfounded and help the two to find her friend Huhu in the end. A creepy snake turns out to be just as helpful as friendly same as a scary big spider or the wild horde of monkeys. At the end of the story all these primal fears help the two to find Huhu in an exciting, adventurous way. During this adventure, many different friends are following our heroes Nuhir, Huhu and Ludwig through each page. From "Schulz" the colourful butterfly to "Frohdo" the frog or "Fridolin" the tiny spider over many more that are hidden on each side. By searching for these hidden animals throughout each page, the younger readers also have even more fun with this book. For whom? First of all this book was done for my daughters Alina and Milla! Then we thought that our sponsored children probably would also be happy to get a customized version. Well, and since their feedback was quite positive, we gave first copies into our circle of close friends. When finally nothing but good feedback was given (even from the "critical" circle of friends), the book was also published online. The initially publication as e-book in the popular app stores did then lead to a search for a potential publisher.Fridolins BruderHowever, the target group remains the same: Basically it is children aged 2-8 years who enjoy being read interesting and funny stories or just like to look at pretty pictures. Searching for hidden small animals within each page is given and thus makes the book even interesting for younger ages. While our big one (5 years) listens to the rhymes and overall story, our little one (3 years) is searching for hiding places of spider "Fridolin", fast snail "Sebastian" or "Schulz" the butterfly. So both girls are somehow caught within the book. For the target group of English-speaking children here is the english version. By whom? Basically, we can describe this book best as a joint family project. After the story was largely determined by the interests and wishes of our two daughters, the first sketches and drafts, as well as the rough storyline was created by Papa "uTZFu". After this, the technical language skills of my wife made a beautiful rhyming story out of it, and after the rough layout and format was defined, uTZFu started painting. The entire book was made on a Tablet Notebook and one (sometimes two) finger(s), and was converted in connection with the simplest of means.

It's 1975. Two baby circus elephants escape into the wilds outside the town of Hugo, in south-eastern Oklahoma. A young sheriff, Hal Powers, leads a posse of volunteers to find them. Two weeks pass without success. Four wannabe cowboys up from Texas join the posse. The New York Times gets wind of the chase and sends a reporter to cover it. A local school teacher, Gail Stewart, who has long had her eyes on the handsome young sheriff, gets involved in the search, but her little brother and his buddy, plus sundry other local characters, manage to greatly complicate her efforts to attract his attention. "The Great Oklahoma Elephant Hunt" offers fun, humor, romance, and a dash of local history to an actual event that forms the background for this fictional story.
