The first environmentalist novel or a sum total of the conundrum of la condition humaineMorel travels in Africa in the middle of post World War II chaos with the sole mission of protecting elephants against two enemies trophy hunters and local meat hunters As he gathers followers and enemies people start spinning webs of rumours around him Surely nobody dedicates a life to loving and saving NATURE There must be something else behind it Depending on personal standpoint each individual who connects with Morel gives him another layer of interpretation or purpose Is his love for elephants politically motivated Does he support political independence in Africa Is he looking for fame and glory Has his time in a concentration camp driven him to complete and incurable misanthropyStep by step authorities and local rebels as well as international photographers and adventurers try to make Morel part of their own reality and they try to rationalise a behaviour they can t understand But Morel is one of those idealists who are happy to keep fighting for what they believe in no matter how many obstacles they find He genuinely believes in the worthiness of his cause and that is incomprehensible to corrupted charactersThus Morel remains remote His choices are challenged by professional whataboutists without him even raising an eyebrow People starving somewhere else is not his cause His cause is saving elephants Other causes can t bring him to give up his own vision and mission I think the world needs Morels for all the lost causes nobody cares about because it is not as bad as something else Taking partial responsibility for nature is much effective and valuable than loudly yelling What about Just like a mother does well to take care of her own children and dedicate her time to making sure they have a good childhood even while there are other children starving somewhere else Morel continues to take care of his elephants while nations are struggling Chapeau

Elephants are edible Strangely however I have never taken part in the eating of one whether as a direct participant or a mere spectator I who have eaten dogs bats monitor lizards birds snakes and other reptiles Not even on TV on that show by the bald American who says if it looks good eat itIn fact prior to this book I didn t know that some people eat elephant meat And after I was done reading I still did not know what is elephant meat called like pork is to pigMorel That s that name of the Frenchman here He had to be French because the author is French Survivor of a Nazi death camp he goes to Africa wages a seemingly futile campaign with his small band of misfits to stop the wholesale killings of elephants So many hunting and haunting images But I had wished the author had done research and brought the elephants closer to my eyes Not just them wailing dying by the hundreds machine gunned en masse for their tusks I would have liked too a dramatic ending Like Morel escaping death in the hands of his tormentors facing a stampede of a horde of these giant creatures arms wide open like a crucified Christ embracing his end with all his love Thus the missing starSo many haunting thoughts too Do we make other living beings extinct because we are not human beings yet Do we need them need to be friends with them so we can complete our evolution When we save creatures like elephants from extinction do we save ourselves too And is there any point at all in this when extinction is anyway a fate that is shared by all including man himselfMorel says that all he wants is for elephants to be saved But others read hidden motives in this Maybe he s just using elephants as a symbol a way to turn world opinion against Western colonial powers in Africa And indeed which is important that the African nations be finally free or that the elephants continue to roam their landsOne character here says that animals like the elephants hinder Africa s development and keep it poor That people from the Western countries protest their wholesale killings and the sale of ivory only because they already enjoy the comforts of highly developed societies and would want to keep Africa and its elephants only as some kind of a zooAre you a nature lover Do you agree with the international ban on ivory trade Do you somehow feel a kind of spiritual or metaphysical kinship with these marvelous pachyderms Do you read novels like All Creatures Great and Small If given a chance would you like to be a member of or at least make contributions to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals If you answer affirmatively and enthusiastically to the above then I d like you to imagine one morning when you wake up you find your cars and all the other cars of your neighbors and fellow city dwellers had become elephants your well paved streets and highways had become vast savannahs with their shrubberies and greens the buildings had become giant trees your concrete and glass house had become a grass hut no faucet and running water because your city reservoirs had become wonderful lakes and rivers and for you to bathe inside your house you have to go to them only a kilometer walk away with your pails to fetch water avoiding areas where crocodiles hang outSo you the nature lover magically now has nature surrounding you Would you not get your gun and begin shooting these damn elephants so you can get their precious ivory tusks sell them become rich and live in New York
