Queen of the Elephants

Queen of the Elephants

Mark Shand

1995 Jonathan Cape London

Recommendation: Cover blurb

Excellent and amazing story of the elephants in India. The Queen of the Elephants of the title is the first female mahout in recent times, Parbati Baru of Kaziranga, who is unusually strongly involved with their conservation as well as their usefulness. The author is a British travel writer and conservationist, and the brother of Camilla Parker Bowles. The book is an accompaniment to a BBC documentary, but stands up well alone.
