The last book in this series gets one less star than the rest because I absolutely hated the ending, which in turn made me dislike most of the second half of the book. I will not ruin it for anyone who plans to read it, but I must voice how angry I am. Otherwise, I loved the series. They are exactly my kind of books.

I first read this book when I was in high school in the 1970's and fell in love with both the books (sequals are Living Free and Forever Free) and the movie. It is a touching story where sometimes humans have to interfere with nature and the consequences that it may bring.
As a kid I loved wild animals and frequently watched Mutual Of Omahas Wild Kingdom (life before cable TV or 24/7 TV). It goes without saying that I was very moved by the recent release had on Christian the Lion.
The true story of Elsa and the adamsom family, heart warming, part 3 now about the cubs and how there hunting skills are and if they can survive the wild.

One of the first books I can remember reading that was not aimed at a juvenile audience.
