Summary
The author buys an elephant named Tara and rides her over six hundred miles across India to the Sonepur Mela, the world's oldest elephant market. From Bhim, a drink-racked mahout, Shand learned to ride and care for her. From his friend Aditya Patankar he learned Indian ways. And with Tara, his new companion, he fell in love
Summary
Spurred by a whim, the author buys Tara, a female elephant and travels 750 miles from Konarak, on the Bay of Bengal, to Sonepur, on the Ganges and relates his experiences along the way
