" Dramatic, moving, and packed with fascinating elephant facts, young readers will find inspiration and excitement on every page.” —Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus and Kakapo Rescue  

The true story of the last viable wild Asian elephant population and the man dedicated to saving them  

Early on a January morning in 2015, a young bull elephant touched on a sagging electric line in the Paneri Tea Plantation in the Udalgari District of Assam, India. The elephant’s soft-padded feet conducted the current and the animal fell, kicking in the mud. The local veterinarian called to the scene thought the tusker was going to die.  

The forest department warden called the one person who could help: Dr. Kushal Konwar Sarma, India’s beloved elephant doctor. 

The Elephant Doctor of India brings the middle-grade reader into the heart of Assam, a remote land of tea plantations, paddy fields, and ancient forests, to tell the true story of the last viable population of wild Asian elephants and one man who is dedicated to saving them.  

Brings Dr. Sarma’s incredible story—and the lives of these magnificent animals—to readers in classrooms everywhere
