    Summary: 
    When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers. This ancient proverb of the Kikuyu people, a tribal group in Kenya, Africa, is as true today as when the words were first spoken, perhaps thousands of years ago. Its essence is simplicity-when the large fight, it is the small who suffer most. This book offers portaits of five children, victims of conflict, including regional history, maps and the causes and results of the conflict.
