Born Free
By Joy Adamson

From the Book Jacket:
There have been many accounts of the return to the wild of tame animals, but 
since its original publication in 1960, when the New York Times hailed it as
a "fascinating and remarkable book," Born Free has stood alone in its power 
to move us.

Joy Adamson's story of a lion cub in transition between the captivity in 
which she is raised and the fearsome wild to which she is returned captures 
abilities of both humans and animals to cross the seemingly unbridgeable gap 
between their radically different worlds. Especially now, at a time when the
sanctity of the wild and its inhabitants is increasingly threatened by human 
development and natural disaster, Adamson's remarkable tale is an idyll, and
a model, to return to again and again.

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to
stare up the steps - we must step up the stairs.
