WINNER OF THE 1992
'TRAVEL WRITER OF THE YEAR' AWARD
The bestselling sequel to Travels On My Elephant, which Eric Newby described as 'a pachydermic triumph' and which became a No.1 bestseller.
'A ripping yarn, told with wit and affection...he is wonderfully evocative. But there is a dark shadow which dominates the story. The Asian elephant is in trouble. Shand's plea for these giant creatures is a cry from the heart of a continent whose last wilderness is being lost, and it is all the more powerful because of his rare understanding of India and her people'
Brian Jackman, The Times
'A rare travel book combining humour, danger, a unique journey with a lovely woman, and an eloquent plea for the pathetically diminished Asian elephant herds'
Mavis Ross, Daily Mail
'So well does Mark Shand write that the account invokes the feelings of any enjoyable quest, anticipation at the outset and a deep regret as the journey's end approaches'
Ian Redmond, Literary Review
