Through a story, ‘Camping with Scorpions,’ His Highness speaks about his interactions with his mentor Humaid who taught him to hunt, train and treat injured falcons.
In another story ‘My Friend, the Lion,’ he talks about the night when he opened his eyes to see a lion in his room.
‘My First Horse’, underlines the value of dedication and hard work while ‘My Cave of Treasures’, talks about His Highness’s determination to transform the room into his personal space for contemplation, brainstorming and experimentation.
In a special tribute to his mother, Sheikh Mohammed shares a story of how he took a lone baby gazelle he found in the desert to safety. The story ‘My Mother, Like No Other’ talks about how our mothers are irreplaceable in our lives.
