Secrets of the savanna : twenty-three years in the African wilderness unraveling the mysteries of elephants and people by Mark Owens( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Mark and Delia Owens settled in Zambia, they found elephants and other wildlife decimated by poachers; the local villagers, who depended on the wildlife, were driven to desperate acts--including poaching themselves. To save people and animals, the Owenses started a microlending program that lifted the villagers out of poverty. But older elephants had been slaughtered, taking with them knowledge that had been passed along for generations. Left behind was social chaos--single moms, solitary orphans, rowdy gangs of young males--and a scientific mystery: how could there be so many babies and so few females old enough to be mothers? An orphan eventually provided the clue to a remarkable discovery. Meanwhile, the poachers shifted their sights from the elephants to the Owenses, finally driving them out of the country. After two decades in Africa, Mark and Delia returned to America to find social changes frighteningly similar to what they had seen among the elephants of Zambia.--From publisher description

The eye of the elephant : an epic adventure in the African wilderness by Delia Owens( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After being expelled from Botswana for writing their controversial best seller, Cry of the Kalahari, Delia and Mark Owens set off on a journey across Africa, searching for a new Eden. They found it in the North Luangwa Valley of Zambia, an area the size of Delaware with no roads, no buildings, and no people. Hippos and crocodiles swam in the rivers, lions stalked the bush, and elephants wandered into camp to eat the fruit of the marulu trees. But the peace and quiet were soon shattered by gunfire; poachers were killing a thousand elephants a year. When they learned that the people in the villages around the valley depended on poaching to survive, Delia and Mark became a one-woman, one-man economic development team, helping villagers start sewing and woodworking shops, fish farms and grain mills, all the while trying to convince them that in the long run wildlife could be worth more to them alive than dead. But some of the big commercial poachers decided that the Owenses should die, and Delia and Mark's battle to save the elephants turned into a fight for their own lives." "Cry of the Kalahari was one of the great wildlife adventure stories of all time. Remarkably, The Eye of the Elephant is even more dramatic, more exciting, more poignant."--Jacket
