Summary, etc.:
How far would YOU go to save a species? How I Became an Elephant is one girl's journey to inspire a movement. When Juliette West set out on a quest to educate herself she got far more than she bargained for. Now she is angry, but her anger is driven by love; love for all that is natural and free. How I Became an Elephant follows this wide-eyed fourteen year-old from suburban California on her quest to save the world's largest land mammals; a quest that takes her halfway across the globe and face to face with the gentle giants she aims to save. On her journey Juliette meets Asia's famous "Elephant Lady," Lek Chailert who has risked her life and freedom for more than three decades to protect elephants from illegal trade and abuse.
