The Elephants Journey
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
For two years Solomon the elephant has lived in Lisbon. Now King Dom Jo o III wishes to make him a wedding gift for a Hapsburg archduke in Vienna. The only way for Solomon to get to his new home is to walk. So begins a journey that will take the stalwart elephant across the dusty plains of Castile, over the sea to Genoa and up to northern Italy where, like Hannibal's elephants before him, he must cross the snowy Alps. Based on a true story, Saramago's tale is an enchanting mix of fact, fable and fantasy.
