In this moving tale, join war veteran James Howard Williams as he encounters Bandoola, a working Asian elephant for the first time. Working together on a teak plantation, the two develop a rare friendship, which even today set standards around elephant care and conservation.
But when another war forces them to leave their home in the Burmese jungle, the two undertake a journey that will test their friendship, taking trust, understanding and bravery to the very limit. Together, they lead a group of refugees and over 70 elephants to safety, scaling 5000 ft mountains as they cross the border from Burma into northern India.
