From Our Editors

This is an unusual biography intertwining two lives — that of a man and an elephant born in a small German town on the same day in 1896. The man was the son of an elephant trainer and Modoc — the elephant — was the daughter of the prize performer in the circus. Bram and the elephant grew up together and Modoc: The True Story of the Greatest Elephant That Ever Lived by Ralph Helfer chronicles their story, from when Bram stowed away on a ship taking Modoc to the United States to battling bandits, armed revolutionaries, cruel animal trainers and incredible adventures. They triumphed in adverse circumstances and thrilled American audiences. A genuinely heartwarming story of a boy and his best friend.
