At the heart of this book is a cry for change in attitude - to respect nature and all that it provides.
Virginia McKenna has pushed aside the glamour of movie stardom, the West End and Broadway where she starred in major shows like The King and I and A Little Night Music.
Instead she focuses relentlessly on her personal mission with the Born Free Foundation or the plight of orphaned children across the world. Through the prism of memory a lifetime of experiences, ecstatic, amusing or tragic have flooded back in the form of anecdotes, meditations and poems to form this book. This book will inspire anyone who cares about the future of the planet and all the creatures dependent on it, including human beings. Part of the proceeds from each book sold will go to support Born Free Foundation campaigns.
