The Games End
Hollywood goes to East Africa to make a film but struggles with Africanization, intrigue and murder to save the elephant. The film story is a “Moby Dick” theme that is played out with a great elephant, Ahmed, that captures the adventure and romance of its great cast of characters who find them-selves in the African bush working to save the game, but running into opposition every way they turn.
It also brings awareness to the poaching of elephants, and how if we don’t start saving the elephants they will no longer be with us. The Author has been to Africa himself many times and witnessed the tragedies, from which he got the inspiration needed to write the book.
