About the Book

Children and adults of all ages will be inspired by this true story of Raju, the elephant who cried tears of joy as he was being freed from a lifetime of captivity and hardship. It is the author’s hope that Raju’s story will instill a greater capacity for empathy and compassion for all animals, and promote conservationist values in our children from a young age.

About the Author

Born and raised in Southeast Texas, Shasta Rose has lived most of her life in Hawai’i where she raised her daughter as a single mom while running a destination wedding and photography business. Her lifelong journey of introspection and self-discovery has led her to feel a deep compassion and empathy for all living beings, both human and animal. Feeling deeply moved by Raju’s story, she felt compelled to write about his plight with the intention of helping to alleviate the suffering of animals at the hands of humans. You may contact her by visiting her website shastarose.com. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Wildlife SOS Foundation in India to care for Raju and the many other elephants at the sanctuary who need our help to live out their lives in peace and comfort.
