    I really wanted to love this book I tried The information and the story of what these two conservationists have done is amazing, however the overly flowery descriptions and romanticized views of Africa almost drowned out the reason for the book In North Lunagwa National Park in Zambia the elephants were poached almost out of existence To make matters worse, the game rangers and politicians were corrupt and in on it These were ver...

    This followup book didn t have the raw adventure as Cry of the Kalahari because Mark and Delia now had funding for their work There wasn t concern of getting money or running out of food or water and they had better equipment But they ...

    This couples dedication to saving animals and helping villages be self sustaining is truly amazing Many people, including myself, have not done as much for the huge amount of people and animals they saved It is a very powerful book about saving the animals in North Luangwa and positively changing the people in the area so that they could sustain themselves without poaching.This book took me awhile to get through because I got mad and angry at the poachers You have to remind yourse...

    This and Cry of the Kalahari are not dry, scientific books I feared they were and didn t read them for almost a decade But these co authored books are the furthest things from biologists dating themselves Well, the two people who wrote them are actually married And so they actually kind of were dating Except they didn t have to talk about being exclusive or going to prom or sneaking into their parents basement to make out or try for second base or anything like that.Anyway, The Eye of t This and Cry of the Kalahari are not dry, scientific books I feared they were and didn t read t...

    This morning, I finished reading The Eye of the Elephant, one of the extra books I picked up in the 639 s Although I occasionally think about the fact that I could be doing this until I die if I pick up multiple books for every number, I don t think that would be so bad, especially if my digressions always lead to such great books As the subtitle says, this was truly An Epic Adventure in the African Wilderness This story of Mark and Delia Owens efforts to sa...

    Amazing true story of a couple brought to Zambia to study lions, but instead led a war against elephant poaching in North Luangwa valley At times this book is incredibly frustrating and upsetting to read, at other times, incredibly inspiring I thought the first half was slightly better than the second By the end of the book the story revolves mostly around their anti poaching efforts and personal battles, and less focus on the animals and nature I thought their first book Cry of the Kalahar Amazing true story of a couple brought to Zambia to study lions, but instead led a war against elephant poaching in North Luangw...

    The authors previously observed lions and other animals in the Kalahari Desert in Botswana, but were asked to leave the country because of their outspoken and controversial ideas about conservation Their search for a new place to work and study brought them to Zambia s North Luangwa National Park, an area the size of the state of Delaware, which was being heavily poached This account of their work, with its successes and many frustrations, is at once a good armchair travelogue, an adventure ya The authors previously observed li...
