Delia is now the author of her first novel, WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING, Loved it! "At this moment, in August 1986, we pledge to each other: no matter what it takes, or how long, we will stay in North Luangwa until the elephants come to drink at the river in peace.
"

This book is amazingly coauthored by a strong and committed couple who live in the African wilderness and relentlessly fight for the elephants right to live peacefully in their home in the Zambian National Park that is North Luangwa.
I have never had such a clear image of what the true, uncharted wilderness of Africa might really be like, this book paints a perfect and beautiful image of that, via first hand experiences.

You will continually gain respect for Delia, as you realize all the 21st century luxuries she goes without, never complaining.
She is a strong, and truly wond Gosh, this was fantastic.

I liked this book as I was reading it although I knew it was dated having been published in 1992.
It was educational, if heartbreaking, and really immersed me in North Lunagwa National Park in Zambia.
The book begins as the Owenses are expelled from Botswana and the Kalahari, their original project in Africa.
It is never really made clear to the reader or to Mark and Delia Owens why they were expelled but they assumed it was because they were exposing nonenvironmental practices that were directly responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of wild animals.
After months and years of fighting to stay, they finally decided to move on and settled in Zambia in a national park where elephants (and other wild animals) were being poached and slaughtered by the thousands.
The remainder of the book is devoted to how Mark and Delia worked to rid the par I liked this book as I was reading it although I knew it was dated having been published in 1992.

The information and the story of what these two conservationists have done is amazing, however the overly flowery descriptions and romanticized views of Africa almost drowned out the reason for the book.
In North Lunagwa National Park in Zambia the elephants were poached almost out of existence.
To make matters worse, the game rangers and politicians were corrupt and in on it! These were very important changes that these two wonderful people made to this country, giving them jobs and a means to support themselves without poaching.
This could have been such a powerful book without all the ooey gooey descriptions.
It felt like they were trying way too hard to make it read like a novel instead of letting it be a nonfiction account of what happened.
The story was fascinating enough on its This was, imo, the best non fiction conservation book I have ever read.

The perfect book : beautiful language and the perfect subject.


I just ordered another book from Delia and Mark Owens: cry of the kalahari.

I can't wait to read it!

reminder to myself: do read this book again sometime This was Nonfiction on Elephant preservation in Africa.
The story that the authors share takes place mostly in the 1980's.
It was kind of fascinating watching their life unfold.
They were dedicated to living with and protecting African wildlife.
This book centered on lions, then elephants.
It was so sad that there was so much poaching going on.
Such tragedy, but poaching was a living for the locals.


Strong and old tradition are strong and often times heavy anchors that keeps people from moving into the future.
That is the message that I got when the authors tried to get the locals to care about conservation when it came to elephants.
There was a line that I said something like "hungry people don't care about conservation.
" I'm paraphrasing the Yes, it took me exactly 4 months to finish this book but chalk that up to life, not this book.
This was a fabulous read of powerful people doing all they can to save powerful, hunted animals in a country set against them.
It was a wild journey following Mark and Delia from a desert to a forest, all the time doing what they can to research and save elephants and lions.
There’s more written by them with the same topic, so I hope to pick up another soon Í Survivors Song é Was written very well, and had a lot of very valuable information about the poaching problems of Africa in the 80’s90’s.
Had a very valuable lesson but also gave a good story about one couples determination on saving wild Africa.
I enjoyed reading it.
