Publisher's Summary

In 2001, Sharon Pincott traded her privileged life as a high-flying corporate executive to start a new one with the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe. She was unpaid, untrained, self-funded, and arrived with the starry-eyed idealism of most foreigners during early encounters with Africa. For 13 years - the worst in Zimbabwe's volatile history - this intrepid Australian woman lived in the Hwange bush fighting for the lives of these elephants, forming an extraordinary and life-changing bond with them. 

Now remote from Robert Mugabe's rule, Sharon writes without restraint sequentially through the years, taking us on a truly unforgettable ride of hope and heartbreak, profound love and loss, adversity and new beginnings. This is the haunting, all-encompassing story we've been waiting for.  

Powerfully moving, sometimes disturbing, and often very funny, Elephant Dawn is a celebration of love, courage, and honor amongst our greatest land mammals. With resilience beyond measure, Sharon earns the supreme right to call them family.

More like depressing elephant dusk...

I appreciate hearing the painful truth about the elephants in Zimbabwe, but I learned very little about elephants, other than how many ways humans currently harm them. This is more autobiography about this woman and critique of the corrupt & ignorant government & citizens of Zimbabwe.

Disappointed

A very strange narration and narrated again by a person who really has no idea about Southern African accents. I had hoped for a more detailed understanding of the lives of elephants, not some extended casual diary.
