Summary
  • A woman describes her experiences raising an orphaned lion cub intending that it eventually return to the jungle
  • There have been many tales of animals' return to the wild, but since its first publication in 1960, one stands alone as the most original and perhaps best-loved animal story. Born Free is a classic which traces the extraordinary development of the lion cub Elsa in transition between two radically different worlds. As it captures the spirit of humankind's ability to cross the barriers to the natural world, Joy Adamson's unique tale remains--in these destructive times, with one ecological disaster following upon another--an idyll to return to again and again.--Adapted from back cover of reprint
