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.

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.

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 youtube.com had on Christian the Lion.
