Description
(One of Kirkus Reviews' "Under the Radar" Top Ten Books: "One of the best books of 2008 you might have missed") In a blend of animal biography and popular science, British television producer and paleontology researcher Paul Chambers gives us the remarkable life of Jumbo, the most famous elephant in the world. Born in Africa in 1861, sent to Paris, and later shipped to the London Zoo, Jumbo was a superstar of the Victorian era, even lending his name to become a new word for "huge." For three decades he was loved and visited daily by thousands, until P.T. Barnum brought him to America—causing a storm of international controversy—and his fortunes changed.
