Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Duration: 4 hours 44 minutes
Tin is known throughout his Vietnam village as being brave, possessing the calm and courage needed to expertly train wild elephants. But when American troops-who Tin's tribe, the Dega, have been helping-pull out of the Vietnam War and his village is occupied by Viet Cong forces seeking revenge, twelve-year-old Tin watches his life change in a million terrible ways. His bravery is put to a new test: He must choose between staying captive or saving his elephant's life by fleeing into the dangerous depths of the jungle.
At once heartbreaking and full of hope, A Million Shades of Gray brings listeners close to a world few know about-and no one will ever forget.
