About this Recording

WILLIAMS, H.: Sacred Elephant (Unabridged)

Sacred Elephant is a moving portrayal of the world’s largest land-living mammal. The poem explores the life of elephants in their natural habitat and in captivity, and details their relentless destruction at the hands of man. Evocatively read by the author, the poem is accompanied by a second disc containing a fascinating compilation of facts and figures from elephant history. Sensitively underscored with classical music.
