The Book


Who can love a baby elephant?

Who can care for a two hundred pound infant who won’t stay “little” for long? Who can work with her to create a language both can understand? Who can share humor, offer reassurance, and learn the lessons of her heart?

A cowboy can… and he did.

Caring for Amy the elephant from infancy through adulthood, he forged one of the most unique cross-species relationships ever chronicled.

Within the charming pages of Elephants Love Cowboys Too is the unique, true story of a compassionate man, his generous family, and the dear elephant who became part of their lives.
