Joy Adamson is world-famous as the woman who walked with lions. These are the books that brought the story of her work to a public whose imagination was captured by the discovery of this remarkable interaction between man and beast.Born Free, first published in 1960 (and immortalised in film by Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers), tells the story of her relationship with Elsa, raising her from a young cub and later releasing her into the wild. Here is Adamson's inspiring saga for a new generation of listeners to discover.

Wonderful Story, Excellent Performance
I have listened to the earlier abridgment of the original "Born Free", read by Virginia McKenna (who portrayed the author in the movie). Joanna David does an excellent job with this version of the book (which is essentially the whole trilogy in one book). Excellent and well done.

Entertaining and enjoyable
Yes it would a story that I would listen to again
Part of the Pride by Kevin Richardson
I like the tones and inferences that she uses it really feel like you are there living the story, that's not easy to do when you are just reading words on a page
When Elsa died I had a few tears it was sad
