Modern girl Mowgli
It's amazing how seemingly fantastic stories that are described in our favorite books are real in everyday life.
Tippi Benjamin Okant DeGraw, for example, spent his first 10 years of life in the jungle of Namibia.
It was brought up with the animals - just like Mowgli from Rudyard Kipling's famous works.
Elephant she called her brother.
Among her friends were leopard,
meerkats, monkeys and lion Mufasa.
Now Tippy is an adult and has lived in France, and her photographs taken over 15 years ago, published in connection with the publication of the book "Tippi: My Book of Africa."
The girl was born in Namibia in a family of photographers who are constantly moving from place to place.
It is thanks to them she crawled African jungle and got himself in them as friends.
By the way, the animals did not stop there: the girl won the hearts of local tribes, who taught her to shoot a bow.
When she was 10 years old had to move to Paris on a regular basis, Tippi long accustomed to the new way of life. I'm sure she really misses such an unusual childhood and full of adventure.
