West With Giraffes, by Lynda Rutledge


West With Giraffes, by Lynda Rutledge, is a heart-warming adventure about a teenaged dust-bowler who is down and out, a red-hot, aspiring, young reporter with a broken heart, and a determined zoo worker with a love of animals that will stop at nothing to reach the San Diego Zoo.

With a stark, Grapes of Wrath vibe and a charming, Water for Elephants narrative, this epic adventure of three unlikely souls, towing Giraffes from east to west coast is an uplifting page turner for readers of any age or lovers of any genre.

Animal enthusiast will be on the edge of their seat as they listen to the soothing tones of narrator, Danny Campbell, navigate the lions of life as the trio trek cross-country to deliver the two astonishing giraffes to California.

Through the recollections of Woody, a dust bowl survivor, war veteran and centurion, he tells one last memory of his life in hopes that it reaches a most important lady.

Don’t miss this poignant love story of animals, adventure, and hope.
