This charming autobiographical tale from Princess Michael of Kent tells of a girl growing up and the incredible bond that can exist between people and animals. In the early 1960s, Marie Christine von Reibnitz (later HRH Princess Michael of Kent) lived with her father on his farm in Mozambique. It was one of the happiest times of her life and she recounts that it was an orphaned cheetah cub called Tess who played a huge part in making it so. The relationship between the young Princess Michael and Tess, whom she hand-reared and later successfully released into the wild having trained her to hunt and survive on her own, will touch every reader's heart. The events of this period have remained with Princess Michael for the rest of her life and in A Cheetah's Tale she recalls not just the tale of Tess, but also the realities of life in Africa.
