Description - An African Love Story by Dame Daphne Sheldrick

This is many love stories. It is the love of Daphne Sheldrick for Africa, the entrancing landscape where she was born and raised. A love for wildlife, which she has committed her life to protecting - and in particular
Daphne Sheldrick's best-selling love story of romance, life and elephants, An African Love Story- Love, Life and Elephants is an incredible story from Africa's greatest living conservationist.
A typical day for Daphne involves rescuing baby elephants from poachers; finding homes for orphan elephants, all the while campaigning the ever-present threat of poaching for the ivory trade.
An African Love Story is the incredible memoir of her life. It tells two stories - one is the extraordinary love story which blossomed when Daphne fell head over heels with Tsavo Game Park and its famous warden, David Sheldrick. The second is the love story of how Daphne and David, who devoted their lives to saving elephant orphans, at first losing every infant under the age of two until Daphne at last managed to devise the first-ever milk formula which would keep them alive.
