A Cheetah’s Tale
In the early 1960s, Marie Christine von Reibnitz (who would later become HRH Princess Michael of Kent) lived with her father on his farm in Mozambique. Then just a teenager, Princess Michael was entranced by the African landscape, by the wildlife and by the people she met. The Princess counts this as one of the happiest times of her life, made even more so by the orphaned cheetah cub (called Tess) that she helped to raise. A Cheetah's Tale is the account of the relationship between Princess Michael and Tess, and is also a story about the reality of living in Africa: from waking up in the middle of the night to find her father had just shot a lioness that was about to eat her to discovering a deadly black mamba curled up inside the loo!
