On a deeper Born Free book it is a statement of a dichotomy fundamental to the idea of mankind as distinct from the animals : that man's enslavement is the flipside of the coin on which is stamped his basic freedom. The first Born Free book Free is sweet, so terribly sweet that you have to brush your teeth before and after reading, it narrates how her husband shot a lioness I think actually the wrong one and how the couple adopted the three cubs, two were eventually air freighted to Rotterdam, they live with the third, Elsa for a while before letting her loose in a part of Kenya decided upon by Adamson's husband, a game warden.

To another way of thinking, which cannot reconcile that mechanical conception with the diverse character, intelligence, and capabilities exhibited by different individuals of the same species, that gateway to understanding seems as far removed from truth as the anthropomorphism of a previous generation, and more apt to raise a further barrier to a sympathetic understanding of animal behavior than a revelation of it. But, when I'm off to work, she knows - when I go to kiss her, she whips her face away and refuses to kiss me.
