The Elephant Whisperer published in April 2009 by Pan Macmillan in London and in July 2009 by Thomas Dunne/St Martin's Press in New York, is the second book written by South African author and conservationist Lawrence Anthony along with journalist Graham Spence. It follows Babylon's Ark, the incredible wartime rescue of the Baghdad Zoo. This bestselling book tells the story of a herd of wild African elephants on an African game reserve. The herd is destined to be shot for dangerous behaviour when Anthony intervenes to try to save their lives.
The Elephant Whisperer has been translated into French, German, Italian, and Chinese and has been published by Readers Digest in France, Finland, Holland, Slovenia, Canada, and Sweden.

Ralph Helfer. Author of Modoc. In my thirty five years studying man/animal communication I have met only a few individuals who have the ability to enter into the metaphysical realm of the exotic animal. Lawrence Anthony has been there and back. The Elephant Whisperer is a true reflection of his ability to be at one with the pachyderms.
Irene M Pepperberg. Author of Alex and me. A lovingly written tale of close encounters, some beautiful, some frightening, with humans and non humans alike. Anthony’s story of his trials and tribulations in preserving a herd of African elephants is a parable for the continent.
