Win a signed copy of A Cheetah’s Tale by HRH Princess Michael of Kent

A Cheetah's Tale by HRH Princess Michael of KentThis month you could win one of two copies of a really fascinating book, in which HRH Princess Michael writes about her experiences in Mozambique, as a young woman, bringing up an orphaned cheetah cub. This is a story not only about the relationship between Princess Michael and Tess, the young cheetah, but also about Africa, its magnificent wildlife, unique wonders and the remarkable pull the continent exerts over all who visit. 

“What makes this book stand out is the princess’s very personal account of her own young life, re-connecting with an estranged father and meeting a loving step-mother, and adopting this small lost animal which she nurtured until the time to release it back into the wild. It is a window into her own world, as much as a really comprehensive study of cheetahs. Beautifully written and vividly recalled, this story is immensely touching and illuminating: her descriptions of Africa are fresh and painterly. I loved it.”
