What One Pride Can Teach Us About Survival, Fear, and Family

Discover the true survival story of how K'wasi the lion cub overcame unimaginable odds, was saved and nurtured by his adopted mother and family, fathered his own son Atlas, and grew into a magnificent star of Lion Country Safari.

Documented by Ron Magill. K'wasi's story is told by world renowned wildlife expert, photographer, and Zoo Miami's "Goodwill Ambassador", Ron Magill who documented and photographed every stage of K'wasi's remarkable roller coaster life.

A survival story of grit and resilience. The story of K'wasi the lion cub is one of heartbreak, adoption, fear, and family. He was born to his mother Asha at Zoo Miami in late 2013 and gained nationwide attention as an incredibly cute lion cub. In March 2014, he was orphaned when his mother Asha tragically died. K'wasi's remarkable journey takes him from the untimely death of his mother to redefining what it means to be in a pride, and most importantly, what it means to have a family.

Animals have feelings too. Society has only recently accepted the incredible emotional intelligence of dogs, pigs, and chimpanzees. But through K'wasi's remarkable story, Ron Magill details how evolved the animal kingdom truly is--lions in particular. Funny, engaging, touching, and thrilling, The Pride of a Lion teaches us about family, resilience, and the meaning of life.

In Ron Magill's book find pictures captured during the many challenges K'wasi faced and overcame:

  • As a young cub
  • When his father and uncle fought over Asha his mother
  • Being supplemented with milk because his mother did not produce enough
  • When Jabare attacked and could have ended K'wasi's life, until Kashifa his adopted mother saved him

If you are a fan of The Lion King, or have read The Lion Tracker's Guide to Life, The Soul of an Octopus, or The Good Good Pig, you will love Ron Magill's The Pride of a Lion.
