Searching for something more than her high-flying life as an information technology executive, Sharon Pincott traded her privileged First World existence to start a new life with the Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe: the country’s flagship clan of over 450 wild elephants. This biography follows the passionate wildlife conservationist from her home in Australia to the new one she discovers in Africa and chronicles her daily life, from cherishing incredibly intimate encounters with these gentle giants to coping with accusations of being a spy. Written with engaging humor, warmth, and a deep, tangible love of Africa’s wildlife, this captivating collection of bush tales offers a further glimpse into the wonders, and grim realities, of choosing a life less ordinary.
