About this book

The world of the tiger is in turmoil; latest research shows that the entire population in India may be lower than 2000 animals and decreasing. Hidden away in Central India, Bandhavgarh is one of the best surviving tiger habitats. Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 stunning photographs by wildlife photographer, Iain Green, "Tiger Jungle" tells the intricate story of the lives of this small population of wild tigers and their forest home.

Central to the book is the life of a tiger, known as Sundar. Through ten years of study, he is followed from a year-old cub to dominant territorial male and father/grandfather of many young. As Sundar walks through the jungle, the habitat made famous by Kipling's "Jungle Book", his daily journey takes him over the remains of lost civilisations, and below the walls of a fort belonging to epic Indian folklore. His pugmarks imprint on the soft sandy soil, marked by generations of tigers over many years. The intertwined history of Bandhavgarh and tigers is a long one - from Maharajahs and white tigers, to temples and tourists. With a personal and passionate foreword by international artist and conservationist, David Shepherd, "Tiger Jungle" offers a unique insight into the daily lives of the tiger - one of the world's most admired and endangered animals.
