    This is the first edition I owned of the remarkable story Living Free Like most of the population of Great Britain I had been overwhelmed when I first saw the 1966 film Born Free and along with almost everyone else rushed to buy the book it was based on as soon as I had some birthday money Born Free told the story of a female lion cub Elsa who was raised in captivity and then returned to the wild I was also able to buy this sequel describing the fully grown Elsa and her cubs as they matured The books were written by Joy Adamson the wife of the Senior Game Warden of Kenya Together they had made this remarkable story happen in real life This is that edition dating from 1967 and the second part of what had become a trilogy I loved this book but as with all small paperbacks the photographs contained seem a bit too small They are all in monochrome as the first edition of the book dates from 1961 and this was normal practice for the time Eventually I was to buy a copy of the first edition with larger photographs although that is now about to go to the charity shop Eventually in 1972 a film came out titled Living Free The film starred Susan Hampshire as Joy Adamson with Nigel Davenport as her husband George Adamson However the film is largely based on the third book in the trilogy Forever Free Born Free and Living Free were to be followed by Forever Free All three books had an significant impact on wildlife conservation and attitudes to the environment I have read the books and watched the films many times over the years I now own a composite unillustrated Large Print volume including all three parts That edition is where I shall review the text
