    9. Undoubtedly the goal of this book is to leave the reader deeply affected by not only the plight of the wildlife, particularly the eponymously named presidential elephants, but of all conservationists working in Zimbabwe and Africa Author Sharon Pincott achieves this goal through sharing her personal struggles and thoughts She also highlights the way that black and white Zimbabweans are separately impacted by the disastrous land reform policies of the Mugabe regime which is still in power as of e [...]

    12. Elephant Dawn was a splendid read I read this after reading Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony Both books were magnificent What sets Elephant Dawn apart from Anthony s book is that Sharon Pincott highlights her challenges with Zimbabwe government officials to curtail poaching and snaring elephants for ivory, in addition to capturing elephants for export to Chinese zoos Pincott develops the same rapport with elephants as Lawrence Anthony, so reading about their experiences in communicating wi [...]

    18. Elephant Dawn is an incredibly moving story and I was hooked from the first page If you want to be inspired by someone who actually had boots on the ground, getting stuck in herself as opposed to or less reporting on what others do, as some others do in their blogs , and who has wide media and high level conservation support for her hands on African conservation work always a good sign I read the page on author Sharon Pincott as background before reading and was impressed by references in such [...]

    20. Clearly the author is dedicated and in the main very strong I recently signed a Jane Goodall petition on elephants and the tragic statistics there align with those in this book The videos on the Facebook page are however magical and very uplifting I found the content a bit overwhelming in that all the enormous effort to assist these elephants often falls short in this country The elephants are glorious may they live forever and the author also It would be good to read the earlier books first tho [...]
