Modoc is the joint biography of a man and an elephant born in a small German circus town on the same day in 1896.
Bram was the son of an elephant trainer, Modoc the daughter of his prize performer.
The boy and animal grew up devoted to each other.
When the Wunderzircus was sold to an American, with no provision to take along the human staff, Bram stowed away on the ship to prevent being separated from his beloved Modoc.
A shipwreck off the Indian coast and a sojourn with a maharajah were only the beginning of the pair's incredible adventures.
They battled bandits, armed revolutionaries, cruel animal trainers, and greedy circus owners in their quest to stay together.
They triumphed against the odds and thrilled American circus audiences with Modoc's dazzling solo performances, only to be torn apart with brutal suddenness, seemingly never to meet again.
