“All my life I’ll think of you, I promise I will. I won’t ever forget you.”
A lyrical and moving tale of a young boy growing up in Africa, and his lifelong friendship with a white lion.
Bertie rescues an orphaned lion cub from the African veld. They are inseparable until Bertie is sent to boarding school far away in England and the lion is sold to a circus.
