"The funny thing about being chewed up by a lion is that they don't bite chunks out of you - they suffocate you. All that firepower and they use a pillow."

Tony Fitzjohn is not you typical Brit. For a start, his best fiends are lions, wild African lions. He talks to them, loves them and, occasionally, gets mauled by them. Born Wild is a story of passion, adventure and skulduggery. The heart of the story is a series of love affairs with the world's most beautiful and endangered creatures.

"The funny thing about being chewed up by a lion is that they don't bite chunks out of you - they suffocate you. All that firepower and they use a pillow." Tony Fitzjohn is not you typical Brit. For a start, his best fiends are lions, wild African lions. He talks to them, loves them and, occasionally, gets mauled by them. Born Wild is a story of passion, adventure and skulduggery. The heart of the story is a series of love affairs with the world's most beautiful and endangered creatures. Tony tells of his years in Kenya with George Adamson of Born Free fame - a time of discovery, isolation and danger far from civilisation. And when he was made unwelcome in the country he loved, Tony had to start anew in Tanzania. There he and his family have created a new National Park - and now the Kenyans want him back. Sometimes a thriller, sometimes a love story and at others a howl of despair, Born Wild is the moving story of how one man stood up for Africa's threatened wildlife.
