'Then came the soft call from the bushes. It was Freddie, my first lion. My favourite. I reached for the handle. But then I stopped. They were strong, thriving, free. I asked Chris to drive on, tears pouring down my cheeks. It was the hardest decision I had ever made . . .'
Tony Fitzjohn has been protecting and living with wild African lions for over forty years. But every lion he saves and befriends he must release into the wild – and tragically try to forget.
Born Wild is the story of how this London bad boy went deep into the African bush and became a wildlife warrior. Standing between some of the world's most beautiful and endangered creatures and extinction, Fitzjohn helps us to understand these amazing animals and in doing so brings us closer to their extraordinary world.
