The book dwells at length on her difficult and tempestuous marriage to the wild man of the bush, George Adamson . reveals the complexities of Joy Adamson's character and life, her deep need for love and her determination to succeed at whatever cost." 539 Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Item Description: Collins & Harvill Press, 1960-62, 1960. 3 vols., 4to., First Edition, with 3 coloured frontispieces, very numerous coloured and monochrome photographs throughout and endpaper maps in the last two volumes, neat inscriptions on front free endpapers of two volumes; pictorial cloth, a very good, bright, clean set. The trilogy comprises Born Free. A Lioness of Two Worlds. With Extracts from George Adamson's Letters. Preface by Lord William Percy. Foreword by Captain Charles Pitman, 1960; Living Free. The Story of Elsa and her Cubs. Introduction by Sir Julian Huxley, 1961; Forever Free. Elsa's Pride, 1962. Nice set of George and Joy Adamson's account of their pioneering conservation project involving three generations of lions in Kenya's Serengeti in the late 1950s/early 1960s. The first volume formed the basis of James Hill's 1966 Oscar-winning movie of the same name starring husband and wife team Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers. So involved did McKenna and Travers become that they founded independently the Born Free Foundation which flourishes to this day. A good, clean working set in poor wrappers.
