KIRKUS REVIEW

The first page introduces the species, the rest follows one small herd to their watering place, then concentrates on a particular calf from shortly after birth until he leaves the herd about twelve years later. Worked in are informative bits on feeding habits, herd behavior, care of the young, and the uses of the trunk -- nothing on mating or childbirth or the separate life of the adult male. Limited by choice, accomplished as far as it goes, with softly sunlit pictures of wrinkled hides and vegetation.
