  • About the Edition

    The Modoc lived in what is now the border area of California and Oregon. When American settlers arrived in the area, they found between 600 and 800 Modoc people. What was life like for the Modoc people? What hardships did they face? Like many other American Indian groups, the Modoc were affected by the arrival of the Europeans. Many of them died from illnesses to which the Europeans were immune. The European presence would eventually become essential to the Modoc lifestyle. The information contained within this book provides readers with an all-encompassing perspective on the history of the Modoc and what their lives are like today.

What an amazing story. If it was fiction, it would be amazing but it is the true story of an elephant named Modoc and her companion since birth, Bram.

      Spanning several decades and three continents, Modoc is one of the most amazing true animal stories ever told. Raised together in a small German circus town, a boy and an elephant formed a bond that would last their entire lives, and would be tested time and again; through a near-fatal shipwreck in the Indian Ocean, an apprenticeship with the legendary Mahout elephant trainers in the Indian.
