Summary
Tony Fitzjohn, part missionary, part madman, has been 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 more than forty leopards and lions--including the celebrated Christian--to the wild in central Kenya. This is 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 of the Order of the British Empire by the Queen. A notorious hell-raiser, Fitzjohn is also a wonderful raconteur. Shenanigans aside, he belongs to that rare species of humans who have sought refuge and meaning in a life truly dedicated to the restoration of the animal kingdom.--From publisher description
