A True Love Story,
By A Customer
This review is from: Born Free Trilogy (Paperback)
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
