About the Book
When Roger Henneous first dons his keeper uniform and sets foot in the Oregon Zoo, he doesn't know what to expect. Over Roger's thirty-year career, he discovers the joys, pains, and dangers of life in a zoo, all the while maintaining an unwavering devotion to Belle, Packy, and the rest of the Asian elephants he cares for. Roger faces many risks--but his willingness to learn the elephant's language earns him a rare level of trust among the herd, reminding us how much we can achieve when we choose to listen.
