It's unbelievable but true! From the breakup from the circus to the shipwreck in the Indian Ocean that nearly cost them their lives, the bond between the boy and the elephant survived essentially the most unimaginable trials. This true story of their adventures together, and eventual rise to circus stardom in the Ringling Brothers Circus, will be a treasure for animal lovers everywhere. But it was never easy. Born on exactly exactly the precise same day within precisely the same small, German circus town, young Bram and his elephant, Modoc, had a lifelong friendship that spanned more than eight decades.

Modoc is the joint biography of a man and an elephant born in a small German circus town on precisely the very same day in 1896. Hollywood animal trainer Ralph Helfer rescued Modoc from ill-treatment and learned her astonishing story when Bram rediscovered her at Helfer's company. A shipwreck off the Indian coast along with a sojourn with a maharajah had been only the beginning of the pair's incredible adventures. They battled bandits, armed revolutionaries, cruel animal trainers, and greedy circus owners in their quest to stay together. --Wendy Smith The boy and animal grew up devoted to each other. They triumphed against the odds and thrilled American circus audiences with Modoc's dazzling solo performances, only to turn out to be torn apart with brutal suddenness, seemingly never to meet once more. When the Wunderzircus was sold to an American, with no provision to take along the human staff, Bram stowed away on the ship to stop becoming separated from his beloved Modoc. His emotional retelling of this true-life adventure epic will make pulses race and bring tears to readers' eyes. Bram was the son of an elephant trainer, Modoc the daughter of his prize performer.
