The Elephant Road

By Nicola Davies


One night, Wilen is woken up when his hut is tipped sideways by elephants! Uncle Denngu urges the villagers to sell the land to a mining company who will cut down the trees and get rid of the elephants. Wilen fears that all is lost... until he hears about a scheme that pays local people to plant trees and look after them.
