Synopsis: "The funny thing about being chewed up by a lion is that they don't bite chunks out of you?they suffocate you. All that firepower and they use a pillow. I suppose I should be glad..."

Born Wild is a story of passion, adventure, and skulduggery on the frontline of African conservation. Following Tony Fitzjohn's journey from London bad boy to African wildlife warrior, the story has at its heart a series of love affairs with the world's most beautiful and endangered creatures.

Fitzjohn tells of his 20 years in Kenya with George Adamson of Born Free fame?a time of discovery, isolation, and frequent danger living far from civilization. And when Fitzjohn was prevented from reintroducing any more animals into the wild and made unwelcome in the country he loved, he had to start anew in Tanzania. Sometimes a thriller, sometimes a love story, and at other times a howl of despair, Born Wild is the moving story of how one man stood up for the world's most beautiful and endangered creatures.

About the Author: Tony Fitzjohn has spent almost 40 years reintroducing lions, leopards, rhinos, and African hunting dogs to the wild. He is one of the world's leading field experts on the relationship between humans and African wildlife. He was awarded the OBE by the Queen and the Order of the Golden Ark by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands for his services to wildlife.
