This is the story of the love between a man and an elephant, and their adentures - many times heart-rending, always triumphant.

I really liked this book. It was right up my alley. I really wanted to love it. The problem is that it seemed 1% true, and 99% story, while it was marketed as non-fiction.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed it greatly. It had all the elements of a fictional book that draw me in - the connection between Modoc and her trainer, Bram, high adenture, emotional highs and lows. It was wonderful. If it had been sold as fiction, I would have loved it unreservedly, and it probably would have earned a 9 rating from me.

I plan to release this on 4/21, International Bookcrossing Day.
