really liked it

Modoc, a circus elephant ant Bram, the son of the elephant trainer were born in a small German circus town on the same day in 1896. The boy and animal grew up devoted to each other. When the czircus was sold to an American, with no provision to take along the human staff, Bram stowed away on the ship to prevent being separated from his beloved Modoc. A shipwreck off the Indian coast and a sojourn with a maharajah were 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.

The story was written by the man who owned Modoc for the last 20 years of her life. A wonderful, true story
