"The continuation of George and Joy Adamson's relationship with Elsa, from the time of her mating with a wild lion until her cubs were a year old, is now described in Living Free.
When the Adamsons learnt that Elsa had mated int eh autumn of 1959 there began a long period of suspense. Not only were they concerned for her safety during her pregnancy, but she finally vanished for a number of days only to reappear without a trace of any cubs. It was another six weeks before she did at last bring her family to be introduced to Joy."
