Jero is a curious wildebeest, whose dreams and questions are bigger than her tiny frame. But she has a plan - get selected to the council, lead the migration, and then take everyone on an adventure. A surprising twist of fate might just make her wish come true. And it would be nothing that she had expected.
Jero's journey is a relentless adventure through the breathtaking landscapes of Serengeti, filled with encounters with ostriches, elephants, hippos, pythons, and many others along the way. On a journey where danger lurks at every turn in the form of prowling predators, deadly disease, and raging rivers, Jero will be faced with hard challenges and harder decisions. Will she be ready for it? Will she be able to lead her friends and her co-travellers? Will she be able to prove herself worthy?
This adventure is a story of friendship, courage, and growing up. Above all this is a story about finding your own path in a herd where every year, a million wildebeest take a thousand mile journey together.†
†About the Author
Abhishek is not known for writing books, which is an acceptable state of affairs given that this is his first book. Abhishek loves taking flights - flights to new places to travel, and more often, flights of fancy. Once such flight took him to Tanzania, where his encounter with the inimitable wildebeest served as the genesis of this story. The rest, as he says, is this book.
