Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR & RARE--------BORN FREE: A LIONESS OF TWO WORLDS by Joy Adamson.
There have been many accounts of the return to the wild of tame animals, but since its original publication, when the New York Times hailed it as a "fascinating and remarkable book," Born Free has stood alone in its power to move us.
Joy Adamson's story of a lion cub in transition between the captivity in which she is raised and the fearsome wild to which she is returned captures the abilities of both humans and animals to cross the seemingly unbridgeable gap between their radically different worlds. Especially now, at a time when the sanctity of the wild and its inhabitants is increasingly threatened by human development and natural disaster, Adamson's remarkable tale is an idyll, and a model, to return to again and again.
Illustrated with beautiful, evocative photographs that first enchanted the world forty years ago this first edition introduces the reader to one of the most heartwarming associations between man and animal.
