Elephant Path/Njaia Njoku
Against a backdrop of luminous natural beauty, pierced by callous human violence, an American biologist, a Bayaka tracker, a Bantu eco-guard, and an Israeli security contractor form an unlikely alliance.
As their lives converge on the paths of the last wild herd of forest elephants in the Central African Republic, each will be tested by the realities of war and the limits of hope for the majestic animals they have committed their lives to study and protect.
