Fifty years ago conservationist Joy Adamson introduced the world to Elsa the lioness, whom she had rescued as an orphaned cub, and raised at her home in Kenya. But as Elsa had been born free, Joy made the heartbreaking decision that the mature lion must be returned to the wild, despite the incredible bond they shared. Since the first publication of Born Free in 1960, and its sequels Living Free and Forever Free, generations of readers have been inspired and moved by the remarkable interaction between Joy and Elsa. The full story is now available to discover in this beautiful 50th anniversary gift edition, which features a collection of stunning photography and rare sketches.
