Two posts in two days...goodness me.
Actually I just have to write about the most beautiful book I think I have ever read. It's called "Zamba - The True Story of the Greatest Lion That Ever Lived" by Ralph Helfer.
It tells of how the author had an affinity and love of lions from a very young age. He grew up to be a great believer in what he calls "affection training", training wild animals through love and respect rather than fear and cruelty. He was given an orphaned lion cub and so began the story of his amazing relationship with this magnificant animal.
I love lions and as I read the book, I laughed and cried...at the end I sobbed. It's a beautifully written story with some photos. But the pictures don't do justice to the words. If you want a really good read or a great Christmas present for an animal lover, get this book. I promise you, you won't be disappointed.
