About this book

Set in the staggeringly beautiful environs of the Ranthambhore National Park, in the colorful Indian state of Rajasthan, Tracking Tigers in Ranthambhore is an insider's account of the lives of the regal beasts of the sub-continent. It is a wildlife tour de force, told with an extraordinary blend of fluid narrative and scientific data. Superb photographs, shot by the author, complement the text, which follows the style of an exhaustive, amusing and meticulously detailed diary.

The dwindling population of tigers worldwide has now crossed the danger mark. Their future in the wild is uncertain. Besides being one of the last remaining natural habitats of the Indian tiger, Ranthambhore National Park is also famous for relatively frequent sightings of the predator. Spread across sub-tropical forests, former royal hunting grounds, lakes, ridges, villages, temples, and a magnificent medieval fort, Ranthambhore is an unusual tiger reserve, not just to explore but also to police and nurture.
