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

This was a really cute story


If you love to hear stories about keeping animals safe and doing what’s right by nature, then this story is for you! Not only was there a nice story to follow along with, but we also feel like this audiobook taught you some really important things about elephants and captivity. Elizabeth Kelly does a great job at providing the painful truth about poaching and captivity, as well as still be able to give us a great story with great characters.

Richard Rieman does a fantastic job with the narration. The voices he used for the truck driver and other minor characters were my favorite.

We got this book for free by The Audio Flow Productions LLC (feat. Joc) in exchange for a honest review.
