A child, a wild animal – and a life-changing attack.
On his way home from a fishing trip, Pedru is attacked by a lion who takes his arm. As Pedru slowly adapts to his altered circumstances at home and at school, he vows to get revenge. So when his father, the finest hunter in the village, agrees to hunt the lion with him, Pedru is thrilled. But father and son track and kill the wrong lion – and find it’s wearing a collar. Pedru returns the collar to the Madune Carnivore Research Unit, only to find that the scientists there can help him see his lion in a different light. With this new understanding he devotes himself to their study and protection, no longer their enemy but their staunch ally… A gripping story of how killing can give way to conservation, written by a leading zoologist and author.
