EPUB Elephant Secret

Elephant SecretTands up to this powerful adversary to protect the sanctuary and her herd In the best tradition of child animal friendship stories Elephant Secret explores the strong and complex bond between Sam and her elephants while offering a fascinating authentic glimpse into elephant and human behavio This book was so good I could barely put it down The main character Samantha or Sam was lovely I loved her interactions with the elephants and how she really was a part of the herd but how she was still careful She used her observation and knowledge from growing up in and around the herd to help her make decisions in how to act with them and with Burma the abused Male Elephant that comes to the elephant sanctuary She even grew as a character over the course of the story and I like the interactions and relationship she has with both her father and Joyce The plot was amazing and without giving it away the main plot twist was a little bit obvious in a way That being said the way the plot played out was great I felt that the ending was very fitting and while it wraps up the story there are still parts of the future of the story that are left to the reader to imagine I loved all the details that were given about elephants and both the afterword at the end and the bibliography showed the author researched and thought out the story wanting it to be as realistic as possible something I feel the afterword confirms is the case This is definitely a book I would recommend In fact I recommended it to a friend before I even finished reading it Amazing well written book
