There have been many accounts of the return to the wild of tame animals, but since tis original publication in 1960, when the New York times hailed it as a "fascinating and remarkable book", Born Free has stood alone in its power to move us.

Adult nonfiction; safari memoirs (circa 1950s - copyright 1960). This is quite the incredible (and very much ill-advised) story, but I thought the writing was just ok (and the dated preconceptions of animals, including the repeated personification of Elsa, to be distracting). A friend had recommended this to me (it is her favorite book of all time; she has read the whole series), but I don't think I could recommend this to another.

I went through a Joy Adamson phase after seeing a film based on "Born Free" while visiting my great-aunt, who had cable TV. Of all her books, I enjoyed her Pippa stories most.

I probably read this book dozens of times as a child, sitting quietly in an upstairs bedroom in my grandparents' house. A must read for any nature lover.
