ELEPHANT DAWN by Sharon Pincott

W.A.R - Wildlife At Risk International·Sunday, June 26, 2016





Questions without answers as the Presidential Elephant herd is not monitored anymore since Sharon Pincott left Zimbabwe. Politics, poaching and hunting has taken its toll and the numbers dwindle.

Sharon’s years in Zimbabwe, spent with this special Presidential Herd, are recorded in her new book ELEPHANT DAWN and as much as she describes the joy and sorrow that comes with all life we are also witness to the collapse of the country of Zimbabwe and the impact this has on humans and wildlife.

I couldn’t put the book down as it reads like a bloodcurdling thriller as well as a heartwarming love story. Through Sharon I got to know some of the individual elephants and their family intimately, sometimes it even felt as if I was magically transported to the African bush and was seeing, feeling, smelling, touching with her. It all felt so familiar... I haven’t laughed and cried so much since starting on the book in a very long time...

After reading the last page I am absolutely overwhelmed by it all. The book made me feel like I was there with Sharon, maybe because I have been close to ele's myself , have touched them and know what it is like to be in their presence but definitely also because she writes in such a way that the picture forms itself with all the sounds and smells and even emotions included. Through friendships with people in Zimbabwe over the years I have come to know quite a bit about the harsh reality and the uncertainty of everyday life for people in Zim. What Sharon not only witnessed with her own eyes but lived in a day to day reality for 13 years is extremely shocking and an intricate part of the book, closely interwoven with the uncertain destiny of these elephants that were supposed to be “untouchable” and under Presidential Protection.
