Living Free by Joy Adamson TX 979

Living Free by Joy Adamson, TX 979, 1st Scholastic paperback printing, 1966, 158 pages. Illustrated with many photos of the lioness and her cubs taken by the Adamsons. This is the sequel to Born Free.

DESCRIPTION: ” ‘Suddenly I stopped, unable to believe my eyes. There was Elsa, standing on the sandbank within a few yards of me, one cub close to her, a second cub emerging from the water, shaking itself dry, and the third one still on the far bank.’

Elsa is the young lioness of the movie Born Free. Raised by her human ‘parents’ then returned to the wilderness, whe has mated with a wild lion. Now she has come back to her human family with three cubs.

This is the story of Elsa and her two families, ‘living’ free in the African wilderness.” (from the back cover)


About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
