Last Chain on Billie
How One Extraordinary Elephant Escaped the Big TopLarge Print - 2014 | Large print edition.
In the wild, Billie would have been free to wander the jungles of Asia surrounded by family. Instead, she was captured as a baby and shipped to America. For decades Billie crisscrossed the country, dazzling audiences while suffering daily neglect and abuse. Told against the backdrop of a glittering but brutal circus world, this is the story of elephants in America, the Elephant Sanctuary, and one resilient elephant who defied the system.
