Travels on My Elephant Sented by Shon

By the international crusader and spokesman for the Indian elephant, and the subject of two Discovery Channel documentaries, this captivating travel memoir logs Mark Shand's remarkable journey through India on the back of a 30-year-old elephant named Tara.Started on a whim and pursued with a passion, their journey covered 800 miles, from the Bay of Bengal to the world's largest elephant bazaar at Sonpur on the Ganges.
