Daphne Sheldrick, whose family arrived in Africa from Scotland in the 1820s, is the first person ever to have successfully hand-reared newborn elephants. Her deep empathy and understanding, her years of observing Kenya's rich variety of wildlife, and her pioneering work in perfecting the right husbandry and milk formula have saved countless elephants, rhinos, and other baby animals from certain death.

In this heartwarming and poignant memoir, Daphne shares her amazing relationships with a host of orphans, including her first love, Bushy, a liquid-eyed antelope; Rickey-Tickey-Tavey, the little dwarf mongoose; Gregory Peck, the busy buffalo weaver bird; Huppety, the mischievous zebra; and the majestic elephant Eleanor, with whom Daphne has shared more than forty years of great friendship.

But this is also a magical and heartbreaking human love story between Daphne and David Sheldrick, the famous Tsavo Park warden. It was their deep and passionate love, David's extraordinary insight into all aspects of nature, and the tragedy of his early death that inspired Daphne's vast array of achievements, most notably the founding of the world-renowned David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and the Orphans' Nursery in Nairobi National Park, where Daphne continues to live and work to this day.

Encompassing not only David and Daphne's tireless campaign for an end to poaching and for conserving Kenya's wildlife, but also their ability to engage with the human side of animals and their rearing of the orphans expressly so they can return to the wild, Love, Life, and Elephants is alive with compassion and humor, providing a rare insight into the life of one of the world's most remarkable women.

This memoir about Dame Daphne Sheldrick's life is wonderful. The things David Sheldrick taught her about wildlife helped her create the elephant sanctuary for orphan elephants. Her dedication to discovering the right milk formula helped baby elephants survive past 3-6 months and on into adulthood. I loved the story of her life and her children's dedication to the Sheldrick Trust.

I have never been more emotionally tied to a book. Dame Daphne Sheldrick tells her amazing life story, from her recent ancestors move to Kenya, to her current role running the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which, amongst other things, aids orphaned elephants and rhinos in order to preserve these dwindling species. I loved the stories about orphans raised throughout Daphne's lifetime, with funny anecdotes about the most memorable animals. The romantic part of her life story is one that shows how happy life can be when you have really found your soul mate. There is so much insight into life and happiness that comes from reading this book, the ups and downs that are encountered as a human lifetime goes on. My only regret is that there is not more of this book to read. I highly recommend this book, keep a box of tissues nearby to help cope with the happiest and saddest moments!

We made a donation to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in honor of my father for Christmas and then gave him this book as a companion gift. He has traveled in Africa many times and has a deep appreciation for the continent and the wildlife there. My father loves history and has read many books in his lifetime and he says that this is one of his favorites! Finding a gift for some people on your list might be hard, and my father is no exception, he really didn't want any more "things" this year. Our gift in his honor and this book were the perfect solution!

I first heard of Dame Sheldrick in an article about this book in TIME Magazine. Her profile captured my imagination and caused me to want to learn more about her, her remarkable interesting life and the foundation that was started to honor her late husband, David.

I was not disappointed. In an effort to raise awareness about the plight of the wild animals in Kenya, especially the elephants, the Dame writes about her and David's experiences while he was Game Warden in the south of Kenya in the 50's and 60's, and right up through to the modern day. They, and later, she, raised awareness about and fought (and continue to do so) the poachers who see value in the elephants only for their ivory. David's untimely death 35 years ago, changed the circumstances of Daphne's life, but she is still living and continuing his work with a large menagerie of orphaned animals, most of which are rehabilitated and then encouraged to re-join the wild community. She and her large staff continue to raise orphaned babies and accustom them to the ways of the wild so they can be reunited with their kind when they are healthy and ready.

If you are touched by her work, as I was, there is an opportunity to sponsor one or several of the animals, which helps keep the foundation working toward the preservation of wild life in Kenya.

This book had the captivating effect to envelop your senses to the keenest of their abilities to feel as if you were there. I chose this book because of my love of animals and my love of the time I too spent working in Africa. This book allowed myself to be transported back to my heavenly safari. It is a book rich with history which was enlightening as history had always been my weakness, rich with culture, and rich with knowledge. To say this book would enrich one’s life would not be an exaggeration. It’s written at a gentle flowing pace you would feel if you were sitting on the veranda watching the tranquil safari sunset. I love books like this that can so easily take you on a heartwarming journey to a magical world even though you never moved from your seat.
