A heart-warming true story of an incredible bond forged between the most unlikely of friends. In the early 1990s, on the plains of Zimbabwe, a new born elephant calf watched her family being brutally slaughtered. Terrified and bewildered, she was transported to America to be sold. There she met the person who was to change her life forever. Bob Norris knew that the ultimate goal was for Amy to regain her independence and go back to the Savannahs of Africa.

Sometimes stories are just waiting to be found. This one about Bob and Amy appeared on a visit to my mothe-in-law. An enlarged photograph lying on her kitchen counter showed a cowboy, his legs draped in chaps, on a horse, with what appeared to be a baby elephant standing horse-flank-high by his side. "Oh, that's my friend Bob Norris, and that's his elephant, Amy," my mother-in-law told me, sounding as if all her friends had an elephant in their yard. And that's how this story began for me, ending with the publication of "The Cowboy and His Elephant." Malcolm MacPhersonAbout the Author:
