In 1960, Joy Adamson introduced to the world the story of her life alongside Elsa—the lioness she had rescued as an orphaned cub and raised to adulthood at her home in Kenya. But, as Elsa had been born free, Joy made the heart-breaking decision to return her to the wild. Born Free is an enchanting, inspirational true story about a truly remarkable relationship, and was the subject of an award-winning 1966 film.
