Aged just five, Saroo Brierley lost all contact with his family in India, after waiting at a train station for his brother who never returned.

Discover the inspiring, true story behind the film, Lion. This is the heart breaking and original tale of the lost little boy who found his way home twenty-five years later.


As a five-year old in India, I got lost on a train. Twenty-five years later, I crossed the world to find my way back home.

Five-year-old Saroo lived in a poor village in India, in a one-room hut with his mother and three siblings... until the day he boarded a train alone and got lost. For twenty-five years.

This is the story of what happened to Saroo in those twenty-five years. How he ended up on the streets of Calcutta. And survived. How he then ended up in Tasmania, living the life of an upper-middle-class Aussie. And how, at thirty years old, with some dogged determination, a heap of good luck and the power of Google Earth, he found his way back home.

Lion is a triumphant true story of survival against all odds and a shining example of the extraordinary feats we can achieve when hope endures.

    This book was a recommended read by a friend. So glad I bought it. Written so well you seem to be on the journey too. It's so hard to understand how a 5 year old boy survived when lost in such a vast country all on his own. Enjoyed every minute of it!
  • Fantastic book!

    I downloaded the book after watching the amazing film, as the film had made me want to know more about his story. The book is brilliant and the film is so well made. Worth looking at both!
  • An emotional read

    By EHawkes84
    A compelling read of hope and faith that one lost little boy may one day find his family again. Saroo has written an inspiring account of his quest to find his mother and siblings merely by trawling Google Earth and remembering snippets of information to piece together where he might be from. Moving and full of hope. His adoptive parents are a true inspiration. Definitely worth reading.
