When I finished I was overjoyed -- that Katy Payne had found language for the reality of elephant culture and the spiritual depth and integrity of the native peoples in Africa -- and I was ravaged by the truths she exposes of the ways that the colonial mind and presence have undermined the natural world and the lives of the indigenous peoples; ultimately animal and native peoples are marginalized and pitted against each other for survival.

It is also a passionate story of Payne's own spiritual quest as she turns a keen eye on her own role in this world. It was there that she first discovered the idea that elephants use infrasonic sounds--sounds below the range of human hearing--to communicate. On every page Payne's courage and empathy shine through, giving this unique combination of scientific journal and personal memoir an unforgettable emotional power.* A 1998 Sc
