From the cover: “In the aftermath of a black African war two men — old friends, old enemies — shadow one another in a running conflict through one of the least-known, most inhospitable areas of the Rift Valley. One seeks to save, the other to destroy, the last remaining elephants as they trek north, impelled by instinct and desperation towards the great volcanic mass of Kulal. The Big Footprints is the story of an extraordinary migration, and Hammond Innes, writing from the experience of his own African journeys, shows a world where the winds of change are already blowing at hurricane force.”
