An unforgettable adventure of love, survival and the call of the wild

For more than fifty years, the enchanting tale of Joy Adamson and Elsa, the lioness, has mesmerized readers across the globe. Rescued as an orphaned cub and raised at Joy's home in Kenya, Elsa found a home and a mother in Joy. But Elsa had been born free, and Joy knew that she had to be returned to her rightful home in the wild once she was old enough to fend for herself.

Moving and inspiring, Born Free and its sequels, Living Free and Forever Free, have charmed readers for generations.
