Coming of Age with Elephants
by Joyce Poole
Joyce Poole has spent most of her life in Kenya studying elephants. This book tells of her lifetime's work, including the 14 years she spent living in a tent in Amboseli National Park in order to carry out her research.
Joyce Poole was lucky enough to experience the beauty of Africa from an early age, and as soon as she had the opportunity she decided to make Africa - and more importantly elephants - her life. Aged just 19, she was living alone in the bush in Kenya studying elephants. There - as well as the very real dangers of living in the wild - she faced the challenge of trying to unravel the behavioural patterns and communication of this extraordinary species. She spent 14 years living in a tented camp in Amboseli National Park in order to carry out her research. Her scientific discoveries are renowned throughout the world and have made a significant contribution to our understanding of elephants.
