|Frans Lanting, a Dutch
American photographer, delivers yet another extraordinary book drawn from
time spent alongside African waterholes, Antarctic beaches, and North Pacific
islands, among other locales. Lanting chronicles the lives of residents

with elephants on their native turf. Few wildlife photographers have worked
in such close proximity with their subjects, as he notes in some of the
wry autobiographical vignettes that open his book, and Künkel's 120-plus
color plates capture elephants in all aspects of their daily lives: eating,
