about

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 front line 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 he was prevented from reintroducing any more animals into the wild and made unwelcome in the country he loved, Fitzjohn 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.
