A Lion Called Christian

When I began this book, I was concerned that two men were purchasing a lion cub from Herrod's Department Store in London. But this time, such a purchase turned out alright. It became a remarkable bond between the friends and Christian the lion. They  raised him for about 7 months and then had him transported to Africa to be in his rightful home. With help, he managed to become integrated into a lion's life and several years later, the men returned and were welcomed affectionately by Christian.

It is a heartwarming story when you often hear of wild animals who do not fare as well in society. Well worth reading.
