An African tale well worth listening to
Tony Fitzjohns story is fascinating, and John Telfers narration fits very well.
There are a number of audiobooks available that proclaim that if you've spent time on the African continent, they will take you back when you listen to them. Having lived on the African continent for a while, not one of the books has given that feeling of reminiscence.
Except this one.
The story is first class - from the tale of when he first encountered Christian the lion (who was bought by John Rendall and Anthony "Ace" Bourke from Harrods department store in London, England, in 1969), through his experiences working closely with the tremendous George Adamson, this is a story for anybody who has been fortunate enough to spend time with African wildlife in their natural habitat.
Even if you haven't been to Africa, but you have an interest in wildlife conservation, please take time to download this book - you will not be disappointed.
From the multitude of books I have read and listened to, there are only a few that I would go back to again and again. This, along with Ray Mears' excellent 'My Outdoor Life', are two of them.
Excellent - truly excellent.
Download, listen, and enjoy.

An interesting read.
Would you consider the audio edition of Born Wild to be better than the print version?
Am unable to read this book so can't answer.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Born Wild?
Hearing about the various lions born in captivity and being released into the wild and how they survived.
Have you listened to any of John Telfer’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I'm not interested in safaris or seeing large, wild animals in any surrounding but the characters and stories kept me wanting to listen to the end and I thought the book was very well read.
