Bad Elephant Far Stream by Samuel Hawley
Far Stream, the elephant, is born to her mother in the wild. She has a sister, Red Moon. Men come and take the herd. Far Stream is separated from her family and shipped to the United States. She then becomes part of a circus and learns to dance and become part of pyramids and such.
The novel tells us of Far Stream's journey. You feel her joy, her pain, her sorrow at given points. Being told from Far Stream's perspective, this is written well.
I would definitely recommend this book, as we all need to be reminded that humans aren't the only living creatures that have feelings and matter.
I was lucky enough to win an ebook copy of this book for early review by LibraryThing.
