Photographs by Karl Ammann and Text by Dale Peterson
Elephant Reflections
Elephant Reflections 
brings award-winning wildlife photographer Karl Ammann’s gorgeous images together with a revelatory text by writerDale Peterson to illuminate one of nature’s greatest and most original works of art: the elephant. The photographs move from the purely aesthetic to the informative, depicting animals who are at once enig-matic, individual, mysterious, elusive, and iconic. In riveting prose,Peterson introduces the work of field scientists in Africa and explainstheir recent astonishing discoveries. He then explores the natural history and conservation status of African elephants and discusses the politicsof ivory.
Elephant Reflections 
is a book that could change the way the world thinks about elephants while we still have some measure of control over their fate.
