About this book

Giant Steps is an extraordinary true story which follows the lives of two elephants, Bully and Induna in South Africa. Their moving evocative story involves tragedy, deprivation, sadness, humour and ultimately triumph, when finally they take their giant steps back to a free natural life. Part I tells the Bully and Induna story and Part II pulls no punches looking at the predicament of elephants today; poaching, possible extinction, training captive elephants and population management are all examined, nothing is off limits.
