I had the privilege of spending three months with real, breathing lions who live under the protection of Harnas. I wrote the initial draft of God is a Lion by hand in the presence of Zion and Trust, brother lions. I returned the following year to edit the manuscript and did that sitting next to them also. The book describes my lifelong, transformative journey to understand the mysterious bond with the Lion I’ve had since early childhood. I took all of these photos of the Harnas lions.
