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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
