Like 'Gorillas in the Mist', The Elephant's Secret Sense is O'Connell's unforgettable account of her relationship with the animals she studied for fourteen years in the Namibian wilderness - a poverty-stricken land threatened by expanding human populations and unstable politics. This is an enthralling story about the resilience of nature and the inspiring, astonishing, and often heartbreaking places where humans and wild animals come together.
"An honest, very personal account of living and working with animals in Africa."
"This is exactly the sort of stuff adventure stories are made of."
"With admirable modesty, but gripping clarity, Caitlin describes the trials and dangers of her studies in the wild. Her story brims with passion for Africa and make this book required reading for anyone even thinking of going on safari."
