5.0 out of 5 stars A True Love Story 14 Dec 2001
By A Customer
I'm 39 years old now so was a young girl when the film of Born Free was released. I must have been about nine or ten years old when I first read these books after seeing the film at the cinema and they've stayed with me ever since. They opened my eyes to another world and awakened an interested in conservation. They helped changed many peoples attitudes about the purpose of zoos ie: the emphasis now on conservation rather than just places for a day out.
But the overriding memory these books left me with is one of true love and devotion between a human being and a wild animal. These books are a wonderful introduction to the wildlife and wonders of Africa - recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable 15 Sep 2006
By Akida93
No wildlife lover should be without a copy of this extraordinary (but true!) story. It is split into three parts!

Born Free: Follows the life of Elsa as an orphaned lion cub in Kenya until she grows up and is taught on how to be a wild lion.

Living Free: Follows the life Elsa and her three young cubs.

Forever Free: Elsa tragically dies of an illness and her cubs are taken to the Serengeti in Tanzania to be released into the wild.

All took my breath away as I read about, not just the lives of the lions, but of the people around them.
