When Lions Roared: The Lions, the All Blacks and the Legendary Tour of 1971 – Longlisted for the 2017 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award The 1971 British & Irish Lions tour of Australia and New Zealand has gone down in history as one of the greatest of all time. When the enigmatic Carwyn James was appointed as coach, he faced a gruelling schedule: two matches against powerful provincial sides in Australia packed with Test players, then a hop across the Tasman Sea for a twenty-four-match slog around New Zealand, which would include a four-Test series against the All Blacks, the best side on the planet. No Lions team had ever defeated the All Blacks in a Test series. Since 1904, six Lions sides had travelled to New Zealand and all had returned home with their tails between their legs. But in 1971 a tour party led by John Dawes set out to carve their names into the annals of the sport with their assault on the great bastion of world rugby. Lying in wait were team after team of hardened rugby warriors and an All Blacks side filled with legends of the game. But as the Lions began to sweep their way across the length and breadth of the country, displaying ferocity and magic in equal measure, it became clear that a Test series of epic proportions was set to unfold. When Lions Roared delves into the very heart of that famous summer as Lions, All Blacks and provincial players recount their memories to bring to life one of the most celebrated tours in rugby history - one that changed the game forever and continues to resonate powerfully to this day.

The illegal killing of Cecil – a famous and magnificent black-maned Zimbabwean lion – by an American big-game hunter in 2015 sparked international outrage. More significantly, it drew the world's attention to the devastating plight of Africa's lions. A century ago, there were more than 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today, with that population reduced by more than 90 per cent, many experts believe that without effective conservation plans, Africa's remaining wild lions could be completely wiped out by the mid-half of this century. When the Last Lion Roars explores the historic rise and fall of the lion as a global species, and examines the reasons behind its catastrophic decline. Interwoven with vivid personal encounters of Africa's last lions, Sara Evans questions what is being done to reverse (or at least stem) this population collapse, and she considers the importance of human responsibility in this decline and, more crucially, in their conservation. From the Lion Guardians in Kenya to the Living Walls of Tanzania, and the Hwange Lion Research Project in Zimbabwe, Sara meets both lions and their champions, people who are fighting to bring this iconic species back from the brink of extinction.

Thirty years and still no justice. Not for the lions. Not for the elephants. Not for the monkeys. Not for anyone living in the Jungle of Five Rivers. The lions bicker amongst themselves over scraps the dragons allow them. A lion sits as a puppet ruler telling lions to forget the extermination of their ancestors while the dragons use him to put down yet another rebellion to their rule. The lions have been fully assimilated into the caste fold. The free and tolerant champions of the oppressed are no more. And yet...there is hope...for one lion alone can help the jungle remember truth. And truth finds a way. Truth always finds a way. “Stunningly powerful!

According to Proverbial Phrases, If God could prevent each person from getting sick, then surely Lucifer would not have become satanic. The aforementioned poem is called a Proverbial Phrase. Proverbial Phrases are written with three main rules as their guide. The three-rule Proverbial Phrase handbook reads, Writers of Proverbial Phrases shall use no word more than once; should seldom, if ever, place gender at the forefront; and, each rhyme, summarized, must quickly take readers to an informative point. Although the bulk of Proverbial Phrases do not begin until halfway through this story, many phrases come thereafter. Kendall, because of child abuse, became a very frightened child. During his parents divorce, Sam, his nemesis, and his mothers new boyfriend, had beaten him until his buttocks was raw on at least two different occasions. Kendall was very afraid of the violent man and of certain other scary situations, as well. One of Kendalls favorite Proverbial Phrases reads, Proverbial Phrases mean more to me than the scariest stories are scary. Neither Kendall, nor those closest to him, knew the subtle signs of mental illness. Like many people of color, Kendalls mental issues began when he was very young. Kendall, however, received no help for his mental condition and he, therefore, became even more subtly ill as he advanced in years. One Proverbial Phrase reads, Even those that know they are ill still sometimes strongly resist being healed.
