Summary:
Deep in the Zambian bush in Africa’s 2nd largest national park lives Chris and Charlotte McBride. Chris has studied lions in their natural habitat his entire life and became momentarily world famous in the late 1970’s when he discovered the first white lions known to man. His book describing this discovery became a New York Times bestseller and Chris and Charlotte did an extensive world tour following the release of the book. In 1983 the couple was depicted in the Hollywood film “The White Lions” starring Michael York as Chris McBride.
Since then the McBrides have lived a life out the spotlights doing what they love the most; studying lions. Now in their old age they have established a camp in the Kafue NP, Zambia, where they live among a lion pride. They make a living from welcoming tourists into their daily routines of studying and exploring the wild life.
The Lion and the Empire is the story of an extraordinary life, of a lifelong passion for the greatest predator on Earth and a lifestyle that is becoming extinct.
