9780002620505: Born Free

A special edition of Born Free by Joy Adamson reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary. In 1960, Joy Adamson first introduced to the world the story of her life alongside Elsa - the lioness she had rescued as an orphaned cub and raised to adulthood at her home in Kenya. But, as Elsa had been born free, Joy made the heart-breaking decision to return her to the wild. Born Free is an enchanting, inspirational true story about a truly remarkable relationship, and was the subject of an award-winning 1966 film starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers.

About the Author:

Joy Adamson was a pioneer in the field of conservation. With her husband George, senior game warden in a huge area of the northern frontier province of Kenya, she established one of the world's first wild animal appeals. Now the Elsa Conservation Trust, it operates an education, training and wildlife retreat centre at the Adamsons' former home of Elsamere, on the shores of Lake Naivasha. She is also the author of several other books about big cats, and her autobiography, The Searching Spirit.

Review:

"Moving and incredible, [with] some of the most extraordinary photographs ever seen." --"The New York Times""Elsa and the Adamsons are ideal figures in a peaceable kingdom." --"The New Yorker"
