Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Elephant (Poetry)?

Older book but still relevant  Jun 3, 2005
This is an older copy of this book, written in 1989. It's is an environmental document.

Heathcote's poetic description of the plight of the elephant is beautiful, painful and very accurate. Half of the book is devoted to his ode to the elephant and the second half is devoted to miscellaneous quotes and short texts that are about elephants.

This book was written when the ivory trade was still in full swing and some of the pictures are heartbreaking. There is a lot of historical information. The places in which elephants have lived have been very influenced by their presence. This is a book that must be read to be fully appreciated.

Interesting book - written awhile ago yet the parts about zoos and circuses are still very timely. It's amazing to me that in this day and age people would choose a circus act with live animals in it, and that these magnificent fellow sentient beings are being keep in zoos.
