I love reading the real life stories of conservationists and this book was recommended to me by a friend who told me it was a very good read and she wasn't wrong. Linda Tucker was traveling with a group of friends in the Timbavati bushveld when the vehicle they were in broke down and was surrounded by a pride of wild lions. The potentially life threatening situation was relieved when an old woman (Maria, the Lion Queen of Timbavati) walked through the pack of lions to save Linda and her friends. The events of this night changed Linda, who began to crave the wilds of Africa and three years later returned to Timbavati to find Maria and so begins a new chapter of her life. Turning her back on the modern, hectic lifestyle she was accustomed to, Linda, worked alongside Maria for more than a decade training to become the new Lion Queen. This is her story of how she rescued one white lion cub and began a long and arduous journey to return the white lions back to their natural pride lands.

The book is very well written and enjoyable to read not least because the content is damn right interesting but one has to show a great deal of admiration for a successful and accompanished woman living the modern day fairy tale, materialistic lifestyle decides to leave everything she knows behind to live a simpler life in hr native Africa because she believes in a more spiritual existence. Much of Linda's choices in Africa are based around the spiritual teachings of Maria and although I was slightly deterred at first that the entire book maybe more a spiritual guide with a little conservation thrown it, it certainly isn't. Much of Linda's work revolves around her spiritual beliefs which guide her to make the right choices in defending the lions she loves.

This is an heroic story of one woman's crusade to protect and sanctify one of the world's most rare endangered species: the white lions of Timbavati in South Africa. Linda tells her story with boldness, courage, passion, and a nobility of cause that can only be described as lion-hearted. It is rivetting from start to finish and radiates an importance and gravity not only for wild life conservation, and respect for the planet, but for a universal spirit of human tolerance, dignity and spiritual enlightenment. It is, in the deepest sense, an enlightening work that inspires hope and trust in the future of our threatened planet. Seeing the white lions as harbingers of human salvation and aspiration, this remarkable woman takes on the vested interests of corruption and collusion among political and conservation bodies, as well as the violent and dangerous pathologies of hunters embroiled in the depraved practice of 'canned' lion hunting. This involves the trade, incarceration and drugging of lions so that they can be shot by rich Americans who pay a huge sum in blood money to satisfy their desires for trophy heads of drugged lions. This cruel and base industry is abetted by unscrupulous dealers, politicians and corrupt officials who are bribed and cajoled into turning a blind eye. Linda confronts these darkly corrupt constituencies with a clarion call to respect, honour and save the planet from willful destruction. She tells a deeply human story with a conviction and illumination that comes to her from an indomitable faith in spiritual values and a belief in her beloved white lions as sacred guardians of the sanctity of nature.Read more ›

In "Saving the White Lions" Linda Tucker tells the powerful, perilous story of how she came to leave her high-powered career in Europe to return to South Africa to free and protect the last of the sacred White Loins held in captivity in zoos and by the Mafia-like trophy hunting industry.
She realized her destiny after a near death experience one night while stranded among an angry pride of lions in South Africa's Timbavati bushveld. Maria Khosa, a local medicine woman miraculously appeared, calmed the loins and lead Linda and her group to safety.
When Linda tracked Maria down she is told she has a sacred destiny - she will become the keeper of Africa's last sacred White Loins. Maria also tells Linda of an Ancient Prophecy - that the Queen of the White Loins will soon be born. To Linda's dismay a snowy-white lion named Marah was born in a South African zoo in the town of Bethlehem on December 25, 2000.
Linda immediately dedicates her life to returning Marah, this royal lioness, and her offspring to the land of her birthright.
She partners with First Nation Leaders around the world who also believe wild, white animals are signs of the fulfillment of the Earth's sacred living heritage and the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy. Some of these leaders represent the White Raven of Canada's First Nation, the White Reindeer of the Sami People, the White Whale of the Icelandic people and the White Buffalo of America's fourteen nations.
Although Linda founded "The Global White Lion Protection Trust,"a non-profit community conservation organization she and her colleagues struggled to raise the huge amount of funds needed to purchase Marah and her cubs and their ancestral land.
