Picked this book up from a really interesting woman in Shoreditch via Freecycle.org. She had apparently been involved in the first Gulf War and a couple of others as a journalist and was part of some European somethingorother peace delegation to somewhere. I had initially gone to collect a camera tripod.

This book is probably going to make me want to leap on an elephant's back and take off across India.

7 out of 10

I struggled a little bit with the tone of Shand's first book about his elephant trek across India and I flinched a couple of times from the tone of this one as well. I found the character of the 'Queen of the Elephants' uniquely interesting enough to persevere readin this book but don't believe Shand really did her justice. Please someone, write her biography rather than a heavily edited trip report by a wannabe mahoot.
