Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to save a friend?

And what if that friend were an animal in captivity?

The Last Elephant in New York City is the story of Maxwell, a Ghanaian wildlife ranger, Jessie, an American researcher, and the elephant that united them. On a decades-long mission of compassion, this is a journey of heartbreak, hope, and redemption, laid out in snapshots, like memory itself. Illustrating the worst and best of humanity, it's a glimpse of parallel worlds - the ongoing sorrows of African elephant poaching and the struggles of life for elephants in zoos. Listen to it with someone you love.

Inspired by actual events
