"In 2008, a YouTube clip became an internet phenomenon. It showed the emotional reunion of two young men and their pet lion, Christian, after they had left him in Africa to be introduced into his rightful home in the wild. Anthony 'Ace' Bourke and John Rendall visited London from Australia in 1969 and bought a boisterous lion cub in Harrods. But as he grew from cuddly cub to full-grown lion, the only way to avoid incarceration in a zoo was to place Christian under the expert care of George Adamson in Kenya. Ace and John did not return to see their lion for a year."--Publisher's description

Autor strávil třiadvacet let jako strážce a opatrovník divokých zvířat v severních oblastech Keni. Tato doba také tvoří jádro jeho autobiografického vyprávění, jímž je čtenář vtažen do nitra africké přírody, mezi domorodce alví přátele i zákeřně číhající nebezpečí. Je tu také rezervováno místo proslulé lvici Else, o níž napsala autorova manželka knihu, později zfilmovanou. Adamsonovy komentáře k přírodnímu životu jsou odrazem jeho důvěrného poznání
