Most widely held works by Joy Adamson
Born free, a lioness of two worlds by Joy Adamson( Book )

46 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There have been many tales of animals' return to the wild, but since its first publication in 1960, one stands alone as the most original and perhaps best-loved animal story. Born Free is a classic which traces the extraordinary development of the lion cub Elsa in transition between two radically different worlds. As it captures the spirit of humankind's ability to cross the barriers to the natural world, Joy Adamson's unique tale remains--in these destructive times, with one ecological disaster following upon another--an idyll to return to again and again.--Adapted from back cover of reprint
