For those many cat lovers who stalk the Park, this is a must read.
This is a story of love, dedication, heartbeak, passion and science.

I've not read the book, but the dedication and love of the staff at de Wildt near Brits is amazing. Will now look for the book. Thanks MM

I read a very early copy. It was one of those books that I did not want to put down. I laughed, cried, was inspired and came away with a much greater appreciation for the Cheetah and the personalities who started the Farm.

I have since given my copy away to an overseas visitor, but I will be on the look out for a more recent edition.
