A MESSAGE FROM AUTHOR, SHARON PINCOTT: "I'm very grateful to all of you who are reading, enjoying and learning more about our world's wonderful elephants, the troubled country of Zimbabwe where so many of them live, and also the struggles faced by those who work to help protect them. I'm also very grateful for your valuable feedback here, via www.SharonPincott.com, and also via my book page www.Facebook.com/ElephantDawn. Thank you one and all!.... It's so important for the world to understand that elephants are in trouble .... You can now 'meet' me and some of the elephants you read about, and also saw photographs of, in Elephant Dawn - like the gorgeous Lady, Whole, Willa and Misty - in the international Award-winning documentary 'All the President's Elephants' - which you can now watch, FREE, online at this address: https://vimeo.com/231846100 .... Enjoy!.... With warm wishes to you all, Sharon."
When Sharon Pincott decided in the year 2001, to live and work amongst wild elephants in Zimbabwe, Africa - abandoning her life as a high-flying IT Consultant 'Down Under' - her friends and family were aghast! She went to hell and back during the next 13 years, fighting to protect more than 500 wild, free-roaming elephants who roam the Hwange Estate in the far west of Zimbabwe. Yet her abiding love of Africa and its wildlife still remains, and is so very contagious. Sharon - now a dedicated wildlife conservationist and elephant behavioural specialist - formed extraordinary relationships with these wild free-roaming elephants, many of whom eventually came to her when called by name. She lived in a cottage that she shared with bats, rats, spiders and snakes. Visit www.sharonpincott.com or Amazon's 'Sharon Pincott Page' to view video footage of her incredible interactions with some of the well-known elephants who star in her books.
Now remote from Robert Mugabe's rule, Sharon is finally able to write without restraint, taking us on a truly unforgettable ride of hope and heartbreak, profound love and loss, adversity and new beginnings in her latest book, ELEPHANT DAWN. It is the haunting, all-encompassing story we've been waiting for, released in 2016.
