Have you read my latest book, “Elephant Dance”? What did you think of it and/or my first book, “Dry Water”?
Leave me a comment here and let other animal lovers and Africaphiles see what you have to say!
I’ve thought about answering this question for a long time but I cant seem to find a way to answer it without sounding corny! So I will just come out and say it – Elephant Dance changed my life. Because of Elephant Dance I applied to volunteer with elephants which I have now done and also with other wildlife. I have had the most amazing experiences and learn’t so much about wildlife and conservation. I have made so many changes in my life for the better that I wont go into here, all of which were a flow on effect. Elephant Dance bought out my passion for animals and gave me the motivation to get out there and make a contribution to conservation and to make my life better by doing something I love. Tammie’s stories in both books showed me that you can do anything if you want to do it bad enough, which I have always believed. I’m still not sure this explains it well enough but it will have to do or I will never put something up here! Thank you Tammie. See you in Brissy next month.
I completely understand the spell of Africa that you so eloquently describe in “Dry Water”. I too have the African bug. Your stories are fabulous. They reminded me of tmany close calls that I had on my adventures. It was so sureal at the time that I was oblivious to the true dangers!
I laughed out loud many times whilst reading your books. My memories came flooding back & so too the African bug.
“Elephant Dance” helped me understand further that the work that was done in Zimbabwe back in the early 1990’s directly benefited the local community where the tourist dollar was returned to them. For humans & elephants to co-exist I was fascinated to read what has been developed since then.
I highly recommend both books! They are fascinating & entrancing.
I look forward to many more from such an inspiring person.
I have just finished reading ‘Elephant Dance’ and I have to tell you that you’re one of the most inspiring people I’ve ever been aware of. I admire your work and would love to get involved somehow in helping the animals but not only of Australia, where do I start though? I absolutely adored Elephant Dance and I will be buying Dry Water as soon as I can afford it! Thank you for offering me a view into Africa and India that I never knew existed. I think I have fallen in love with Africa even though I have never been.
I have read Elephant Dance and am halfway through my personally signed copy of Dry Water. My love of animals and adventure led me buy Elephant Dance and my love of Tammie’s writing and her passion for Africa and all it holds made me buy Dry Water. Both written in such a captivating manner that I feel like I am watching a movie, these books are informative, exciting, real and adventurous. I am half way through my personally signed copy of Dry Water and can’t put it down! Two purchases that are very welcome in my book collection.
I’m keeping in with Tammie’s progress through her website and I am ready and waiting for the right opportunity I can jump on to do my bit for the Elephants and the people that live with them.
Thank you Tammie! I hope there are more books to come! You are a real inspiration.
