Gentle Footprints : A Collection of Animal Stories Synopsis

Gentle Footprints is the long awaited 2010 charity book featuring brand new story Leopard Aware by Watership Down author, Richard Adams and foreword by actress and founder of the Born Free Foundation, Virginia McKenna OBE.

£1 from the sale of every copy and a share of author royalties will be donated to The Born Free Foundation for their valuable work with animals.

This is a beautifully written collection of 19 short stories about wild animals for adults.

"What is special about these stories is many are told from the animals' point of view. A point of view too rarely heard."
Virginia McKenna OBE.

The stories range from the simple elegance of the octopus to the majestic elephant. After each story there are important facts about each of the featured animals and links to conservation organisations. So this book is not only a wonderful collection of fictional stories that raises funds for Born Free, it also raises awareness. If there is a single take home message it's that animals belong in the wild, not in zoos.

A must have book.
