REVIEW ´ Born Wild The Extraordinary Story of One Man's Passion for Africa å [Reading] ➷ Born Wild The Extraordinary Story of One Man's Passion for Africa By Tony Fitzjohn – Tony Fitzjohn part missionary part madman has been called “one of the world’s most endangered creatureTony Fitzjohn part missionary part madman has been The Extraordinary PDFEPUB #190 called “one of the world’s most endangered creatures” An internationally renowned field expert on African wildlife he is best known for the eighteen years he spent helping Born Free’s George Adamson return than forty leopards and lions including the celebrated Christian to the wild in Born Wild MOBI #10003 central Kenya          Born Wild is. I have great respect for Tony and his work; thanks to him George Adamson's legacy lives onIt is to an extent a continuation of George and Joy's story after Born Free up until their deaths It also picks up where A Lion Called Christian ended When George was killed and Tony moved to Mkomazi about halfway through the book where his story of George's lions ends Gareth Patterson adopted three lion cubs left in Kenya George's lions which he describes in Last of the FreeBut back to Born Wild As much as I couldn't put the book down for about 150 pages the last couple of chapters read like an overlong acknowledgements section I understand there were a lot of people involved but at some point it's just too much infoI'd prefer to read about the lioness Jipe for example than about Fitzjohn's countless friends Why not devote one of the last chapters to her But no it's important to keep telling us how woderful their benefactors are We read that Jipe was like part of the family Great But how are we supposed to feel anything when we read about her death if she was mentioned in passing sueezed somewhere between this person helped a lot and that friend helped a lot tooTony's time with George and the lions and the leopards is the reason why this book gets 4 stars It's well written and interesting but I still can't get over all the names one has to wade through to get to the story parts And it's hard to skim through it too because it's all woven into the story Clever Infuriating but clever

Tony Fitzjohn å 1 REVIEW

The memoir of Fitzjohn’s extraordinary life It shows how a man driven by an impossibly restless spirit can do almost anything from being a bouncer in a brothel to surviving a vicious lion attack to fighting with the Tanzanian government to being appointed an Officer Wild The Extraordinary MOBI #237 of the Order of the British Empire by the ueen         A notorious hell raiser given to scrapes with bandits evil policemen and wicke. An interesting read if you can skim Work with the lions is interesting as are the political struggles faced in country surrounding preservation The skim part are all of the names of politicos and government folks that are part of his story but not retainable and often unpronounceable This man gave it all up to help the lions He is a saint for wildlife in Kenya and Tanzania This book took me a long time to read due to some denser material Again I read this book prior to my trip to Africa Good research


Born Wild The Extraordinary Story of One Man's Passion for AfricaD politicians who has been shot at by poachers and chewed up by lions Fitzjohn is also a wonderful raconteur Shenanigans aside he belongs to that rare species Wild The Extraordinary Story of PDFEPUB or of humans who have sought refuge and meaning in a life truly dedicated to the restoration of the animal kingdom Many times Tony Fitzjohn has put his life on the line for the cause in which he believes Born Wild is the story of that passion. This man is amazing If I could accomplish half of what he's done in my lifetime I'd die content I admire his perseverance and his courage and his just do it attitude the man is a legend and one of my few heroes
