‘A book to take readers into another world.’ – Caroline Jones AO, presenter, Australian Story
’A raw, honest story that needs to be heard.’ – Tony Park, bestselling author of An Empty Coast
’This mesmerizing book is not just about a love of elephants, it is also about the indomitable spirit of someone who followed her passion.’ – Cynthia Moss, world-renowned elephant specialist, celebrated in the BBC’s Echo of the Elephants
In 2001, Sharon Pincott traded her privileged life as a high-flying corporate executive to start a new one with the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe. She was unpaid, untrained, self-funded and arrived with the starry-eyed idealism of most foreigners during early encounters with Africa. For thirteen years – the worst in Zimbabwe’s volatile history – this intrepid Australian woman lived in the Hwange bush fighting for the lives of these elephants, forming an extraordinary and life-changing bond with them.
Powerfully moving, sometimes disturbing and often very funny, Elephant Dawn is a celebration of love, courage and honour amongst our greatest land mammals. With resilience beyond measure, Sharon earns the supreme right to call them family.
