Born Wild

Born Wild by Tony Fitzjohn
ISBN: 9780670918911

Picked this up recently and it's a pretty good read. Tells of Tony Fitzjohns' time working with George Adamson at Kora in Kenya and then moving into his development of Mkomanzi in Tanzania. Some interesting tales and gives a good insight into the life that these chaps were leading at Kora.

He featured in the movie To Walk with Lions (the one where Richard Harris portrayed George Adamson).

A worthwhile read, not to heavy and very interesting in their interaction with the lions.
