‘Jamina heard a sound. A sad and desperate cry that tugged at her heart. She held her breath and listened...’

Jamina played hunters. She shot the mighty elephant; she tracked a rhino and stalked a pride of lions. But then something made her stop; a sound so sad and forlorn that she thought her heart would break. When Jamina discovers the source of the noise, she begins a journey, both physical and spiritual, that leads to a new knowledge of herself and the world around her.
