Synopsis

Kimba by Geoffrey Malone

Born among the rocks of M'goma Hill, Kimba is nurtured by his mother, fierce, tender Sabba. She teaches him the ways of the plains - the merciless hunt for food, the endless dangers from hyenas, leopards, crocodiles and rival lions. But when strange lions wrestle the pride away from his sire, Black Mane, Kimba must flee for his life to face the struggle for survival alone. Slowly, painfully, he grows fiercer and stronger: ready at last to challenge for leadership of his old pride and to confront lion's greatest enemy - humans.
