Describes the liberation of two street elephants and their journey to the Elephant Nature Park through the world of elephant traders, poor villagers, well-wishing monks, and angry animal-rights advocates
Antoinette van de Water is the founder of "Bring the Elephants Home," an organization working to create a better future for Thai elephants. Liesbeth Sluiter is a journalist and photographer based in the Netherlands.
This delightful, easy-reading book, The Great Elephant Escape, is the story of that dream made real. As we live the adventure with Antoinette, we learn that bringing elephants home to their rightful place in a natural habitat is not so easy. . . . Words don't convey the full sensual and poignant experience of this comment, but you can't help but want to be a part of it. And you can.* Chiangmai Mail *
