William Grill's Bandoola, the great elephant rescue is released in October, published by Flying Eye Books it is a delicate homage to the bond between elephants and man. It features illustrations of Myanmar’s forests and mountain ranges and is rich with facts about Asian elephants and how humans live and worked with them in the past and today.
"I came across the story of Elephant Bill and Bandoola while I was studying at university. At first I was struck by the grainy images of elephants hauling enormous logs in the jungle, but what later gripped me was the epic journey they undertook, and the incredible bond between them. Our relationship with the animal kingdom is constantly evolving, and this true story proves how a kind and patient approach brings out the best in humans and animals." William Grill
