I was inspired to read this after my husband had me watch the movie. It was great to read in detail the wonderful journey of the Adamsons and Elsa.

I hope the other two books soon become available on the kindle.

These creatures are not just "mindless beasts"- maybe none of them are.

This book actually seems to be the entire Born Free trilogy. It is somewhat misleadingly subtitled "The Full Story", with Parts One, Two and Three, which seem to correspond to the three books: Born Free, in which Elsa is raised and released into the wild; Living Free, in which Elsa raises her cubs; and Forever Free, in which Adamson describes the lives of the cubs.

It's a delightful surprise to have all the whole series conveniently sold together. I just wish the product description was a little clearer on this matter.

Where are the pictures? The paper books had photos on almost every page. Without them this kindle book lacks the original's charm. The fact that this is not disclosed by the publisher makes it a sham. Avoid this edition and seek out the paper books. The photos are precious and show what words alone can not.

I've loved "Born Free" since I read it as a child. The adventures of Elsa the Lioness, along with Daktari on television, made me fall in love with the idea of going to Africa. I bought this copy to refresh my memory as I prepare to take that long awaited safari to Kenya next summer. I'll be visiting the parks where Elsa grew up and the burial spots of both Elsa and Joy Adamson.

Here is the review from my 10 yr old:

"Born Free has a lot of fascinating adventures and it has heart-breaking parts, and it has heart-warming parts. I highly recommend this book. This book is very adventurous, heart-warming, heart-breaking, and very sad."

The Addamsons tried so hard for Elsa and all the Lions and they all paid with their lives. Joy & George had amazing affinity with the Lions. Sadly today those that are Born Free are facing some shocking situations all created by humans. Worth buying and reading a classic true story.

Born Free is must read for all animal lovers. It helps you put your feelings about beloved pets into words that everyone can understand. It inspires us to be an advocates for our animals who cannot speak fot themselves.p

Of course I saw Born Free as a young teenager when it first came out. However, I never read the books until now. I'm so glad I did. There is so much more to be known about the story than the movie showed and they take Elsa's story much further than the movie could.

I can't thank George & Joy Adamson enough for bringing Elsa's story to the world. As a result there is a lot more interest in wildlife in their own habitat. I hope to see the day when Zoos won't exist and humans will make every effort to share our world with all of God's creatures.

Timeless and moving account of returning a lion cub to the wild. The movie has dated but the book is still great.
