5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling and passionate read, 26 Jan 2011
This review is from: Born Wild: The Extraordinary Story of One Man's Passion for Lions and for Africa (Hardcover)
I happened upon this book entirely by accident. I knew well the story of Joy & George Adamson and Elsa but was entirely unaware of Tony Fitzjohn's contribution to the conservation of African wildlife over the last 40 years. Well, what a read! From the moment I sat down with the book I was enthralled. I was unable to put it down and felt an energy and passion lifting off the pages towards me at every turn. Tony Fitzjohn is a man to be deeply admired and his obvious lifelong commitment to the lions and leopards (and indeed all wildlife) of Africa is truely inspirational. The personal challenges he faced and overcame are not dwelled upon but the glancing references to them throughout only serve to heighten his achievements in the face of adversity both from within and without. Tony Fitzjohn is a true hero for wildlife and one who tells his story in an entertaining, heartfelt, honest and compelling way. I laughed and cried (in equal measure) while reading this remarkable man's account of his journey to date.
