UNDER THE AFRICAN SKY is the story of Krishna, a nine-year-old Indian-American boy who struggles to reconcile his Indian heritage with his American identity. In this story, Krishna travels with his parents to Kruger National Park in South Africa for a safari. Krishna can hardly contain his excitement to discover wild animals in their natural habitat. When he gets there, Krishna realizes that while nature can seem tough and unforgiving, amazing experiences await those who are patient and attentive. He strikes up a surprising and touching friendship with Broken Tusk, an elephant who resides in the Park among his herd. Through this friendship-and a nocturnal adventure full of magic-Broken Tusk shows Krishna the real splendor of the African wilderness, of nature everywhere, and of Krishna’s own unique heritage and experience.
