Description

Traumatized in the wake of an attack by ivory poachers, a herd of elephants sets out for A Safe Place, guided by Mud, a young elephant cow blessed with visionary powers. The White Bone is a classic quest story made dazzling and audaciously original, as the elephants struggle for their own lives and the continuation of their kind.
