The Circus World LLC

Thrill to the excitement of an 8,000 pound pachyderm as you slip into the world of the travelled, trained, and adventurous titans of the tented arenas.

     America's Elephants is a fascinating new journey into the hinterlands of the countryside  that sees an animal so huge, so graceful, so strong, and yet so tender, that horses balk in fright, parents stand away shyly and children of all ages are mesmerized by their incredible abilities.

    This fascinating new e-Book will take you from oceanside arrivals to the births of new elephants here in America. The advertisement world loved the elephants and cards, ads, and newspapers all utilized this lumbering giant of the jungle.

     The Circus in particular, utilized the excitement that the elephants created to the maximum amount of use. The daily street parade featured these swaying, swaggering marvels and their sequined blankets and delightful riders.  The circus posters that heralded the arrival of the greatest piece of American entertainment to arrive in your town for just one day regalled in their brilliance, offering the strange, the odd, and the unusually enormous creatures to appear before your very eyes.

   The elephants became a mainstay attraction in the Public Zoos. The mysterious White Elephants of Burma graced the American soil a couple of times only to find amazing examples of unexplained phenomenon to occur after returning to its native lands.

   Now the elephant is struggling for survival. Poaching and International regulations have destroyed what was once taken for granted. Breeding programs are slowly helping out but when an elephant is pregnant for 22 months, not much gets done very quickly.

Excerpt
At three o'clock in the morning, the night is nearing dawn and home is just a few blocks away. Anybody else would be in bed by now, but no not you. You decided that a little time out with your friends would be all right. Then after saying your goodbyes and heading for home, you turn the corner and promptly walk into the trailing end of an 8,000 pound female Asian elephant, standing there minding her own business with ten of her elephantine friends, there are also some people you‟ve never seen before, and one lonely cop.
You have just stumbled into the land of America's Elephants. The circus is coming to town, to your town in fact, with all the glitter and sawdust that bewilders, astounds, and delights young and old alike. There will be lions and tigers, horses and zebras, brave and daring aerialists and the ridiculous buffoonery of the cavalcade of clowns but the only thing you‟ll remember in a year‟s time, will be the size, the smell, and the antics of the world‟s largest living land animal.
