They've contributed to the national discourse on civil rights, immigration, politics, and capitalism. They became so deeply ingrained in the American way that they were once accorded the rights of American citizenship, including the right to vote and the right to provide testimony under oath—and they have incurred brutal punishments when convicted of human crimes.

Hugh Schmitt was born in Hamburg, Germany on February 26, 1938, growing up under the dictatorship of Adolph Hitler and a war torn country. Running to bomb shelters, losing a house and possessions to bombs, and traveling Europe and abroad with his parents in the Circus Hagenbeck, he lived a whole lifetime of adventures in just his first twelve years. His father, Hugo Schmitt, was a world famous elephant trainer. This first book ends with an unbelievable journey to the now defunct Ellis Island in New York City harbor in full view of Lady Liberty.

In the 19th century, writes Douglas Chadwick in this superb journalistic study, Africa boasted more than 10 million of the giant pachyderms; there are fewer than half a million today, a situation mirrored in Asia.
