Born Free by Joy Adamson

The book tells the true story of Elsa, a lioness raised by a game warden and his wife after being orphaned as a cub. Unlike other lions raised in captivity, Elsa is taught how to survive in the wild. The narrative beautifully captures the deep bond that forms between Elsa and her human caretakers, as well as the emotional struggle they face as they prepare to release her into her natural habitat, aiming to grant her freedom while fearing for her survival. The story is a poignant exploration of the complex relationship between humans and animals, and the moral implications of their interactions.
