about

In this riveting real-life adventure, Mark and Delia Owens tell the dramatic story of their last years in Africa, fighting to save elephants, villagers, and -- in the end -- themselves. The award-winning zoologists and pioneering conservationists describe their work in the remote and ruggedly beautiful Luangwa Valley, in northeastern Zambia. There they studied the mysteries of the elephant population’s recovery after poaching, discovering remarkable similarities between humans and elephants. A young elephant named Gift provided the clue to help them crack the animals’ secret of survival. A stirring portrait of life in Africa, Secrets of the Savanna is a remarkable record of the Owenses'' unique passions.
MARK AND DELIA OWENS are the authors ofCry of the Kalahari, an international bestseller and winner of the John Burroughs Medal,The Eye of the Elephant, andSecrets of the Savanna. Delia is the author of the #1New York Times bestsellerWhere the Crawdads Sing.
