Tepi watches the animals on the wild plains of Africa. He sees bony cows and goats, and over there, a family of elephants munching on dry grass. The herds of wildebeest, still as stones, are waiting, as are the zebras and the giraffes swaying by the tall acacias. What are they waiting for? Then it comes, rumbling and roaring across the plains. The sun hides and the skies grow dark, and Tepi discovers what all the animals were waiting for, as a wall of water comes crashing down and the herds race toward the first flush of new grass. In a simple, stirring voice, this stunningly illustrated picture book tells the story of the dramatic cycle of life on the Masai Mara range -- one of the last great, wild places on Earth.
