9780060761332: Zamba: The True Story of the Greatest Lion That Ever Lived

When a celebrated animal trainer takes a four-month-old African lion cub into his home, they care for each other, learn from each other, and change each other's lives, indelibly. This is a one-of-a-kind love story. This moving story is about the animal that started Ralph Helfer's illustrious career as Hollywood's top animal trainer for more than 30 years. When Helfer began his career training animals, he was shocked by the danger and cruelty that dominated the field. He believed that if he could raise even the most dangerous animal from a young age and raise him in a loving, caring, yet disciplined environment, a process he termed Affection Training, love could be the basis of the animal's training instead of fear. He brought Zamba, then a four-month-old cub, into his home, and his theories proved resoundingly correct. Zamba would go on to star in major motion pictures and on television, but more importantly, a bond developed between Helfer and Zamba that became the most important in Helfer's life. With stories that range from the hilarious to the incredibly sad and poignant, Zamba will give any "Lion King" fan a new hero and touch every animal lover's heart.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. When Ralph Helfer, now one of Hollywood s top animal behaviorists, first began working, he was shocked by the cruelty that was accepted practice in the field. He firmly believed in affection training -- that love, not fear, should be the basis of any animal s development, even when dealing with the most dangerous of creatures. Then Zamba came into his life -- an adorable four-month-old lion cub that went on to prove Helfer s theories resoundingly correct.Over the next eighteen years, Zamba would thrive and grow, and go on to star in numerous motion pictures and television shows -- all the while developing a deep and powerful bond of love and affection with the man who raised him. By turns astonishing, hilarious, and poignant, Zamba is not only the unforgettable story of the relationship that Helfer would come to consider one of the most important in his life but also that of the amazing career and adventures of the greatest lion in the world.
