Caitlin O'Connell, a professor at Stanford University, has spent the last twenty years studying elephants. She was in her research tower in Namibia the night that Liza, a baby elephant, was born, and heard her cries shortly after birth. She and her husband, Timothy Rodwell, a wildlife photographer and professor at UC-San Diego, then spent the next few months following Liza and her family. The resulting book, a fact-filled narrative beautifully captures the story of young Liza's life. Beautiful, full color nature photography enhances the story. A two-page "Did You Know?" spread gives further information about elephants.
