Abstract:

2012 Robert F. Sibert Honor Book In the sprawling African scrub desert of Etosha National Park, they call her "the mother of all elephants." Holding binoculars closely to her eyes, American scientist Caitlin O'Connell could not believe what she was seeing from these African elephants: as the mighty matriarch scanned the horizon, the other elephants followed suit, stopped midstride, and stood as still as statues. This observation would guide the scientist to a groundbreaking discovery about elephant communication: elephants actually listen with their limbs.

"This intriguing volume from the Scientists in the Field series will interest readers."--Booklist "The many color photographs, predominantly from the Namibian field sites, capture the majestic elder elephants, their always-appealing offspring, and the dusty, rugged landscapes in which the scientists and research assistants camp and work."--Horn Book "This amazing presentation is a must-have for all collections."--School Library Journal, starred review.
