    J.H. Williams is the protagonist of Vicki Croke’s splendid new book, “Elephant Company: The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II.”.   The aim of the creators of Remembering Elephants was to produce the most beautiful photographic book on elephants ever made. 65 of the world's top wildlife photographers (including eight overall former winners of Wildlife Photographer of the Year) donated images for the project, including Art Wolfe, Frans Lanting, Jonathan & Angela Scott and Michael Poliza.5/5(18).

    However, there is a large array of beautiful and rare elephant folio-sized books from the past – some were privately printed and some are limited editions.

Mountains of the Moon (Latin: Montes Lunae; Arabic: جبل القمر ‎, Jabal al-Qamar or Jibbel el Kumri) is an ancient term referring to a legendary mountain or mountain range in east Africa at the source of the Nile s identifications have been made in modern times, the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda being the most celebrated.

    Seeking the Elephant, Glendale, California: Arthur H Clarke, FHL H97h; Johnston, Wm G. Overland to California: A member of the wagon train first to enter California in the memorable year of Oakland: Biobooks, Kilgore, William H.] Edited by Joyce Rockwood Muench. Although, in the end, child and elephant are merrily, consciously linked, the final whimsical image contradicts advice given much earlier—“look for something large and gray”—and compels readers to revisit the entire book. Another tribute to imagination from highly creative partners. (Picture book. ).
