It starts when a boy and an elephant are born on the same day, in the same small town in Germany, and doesn't end until many years later when both, well advaned in age, pass away within a short while of each other. During the years in between, the two live through a staggering series of experiences that give Modoc all the energy and excitement of a great adventure novel."--Jacket.
