This fascinating autobiography shows her life as one full of energy, passion, grace and wisdom. Beginning with her acting career, she moves on to how she set up Zoo Check in 1984 to highlight the awfulness of zoos, and then the Born Free Foundation itself. She calls for a change in attitude to respect all nature. This book will inspire anyone who cares about the future of the planet and all the creatures dependent on it. Foreword by Joanna Lumley.
