Giant Steps is the true account of two elephants, Bully, a former animal film star; and Induna, who suffered severe trauma as an adolescent elephant when much of his family was culled around him. Both animals, growing up far apart and quite differently, have been the victims of unnatural and inhumane circumstances and treatment, and both were driven to reacting to their circumstances. One of them is even suspected of having killed one of his careers. Their individual situations deteriorated to the point that both were considered to be dangerous animals and were under threat of being put down. This is the story of their lives, about the exploitation of these majestic but sensitive animals, how they each came to be imprisoned in unsuitable employment and shunted about from one ill-equipped venue to another before finding one another, free at last, on a southern African farm. It s a gripping account, full of drama, danger, sadness and ultimate rescue. Richard Peirce uses this compelling story to enhance awareness of the plight of wild animals and appeal for their protection. One third of the royalties will be donated to the Tusk Trust, a British charity that does sterling work initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programs across Africa."
