About this book

Award-winning, inspirational wildlife photographer Andy Rouse has self-published this fine study to coincide with the International Year of the Tiger. It is intended to raise awareness - the author will donate 25% of its profits to tiger conservation projects in the field.

Andy says, "This new book has been a labour of love and is the culmination of 8 years work. I have self-published this book at my own expense simply because no publisher would allow me to make such a significant donation from the profits. Tigers need our help. Their population is now down to a few thousand and I cannot just sit back and watch these magnificent animals fade into the night. The book contains my best tiger images to date (including several award winning images from the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year) and is written to be educational and inspirational. It's a personal journey through my life with tigers and I have tried to capture the feelings and emotions behind each image in the accompanying text."

The book begins with sections on a tiger's life and some personal experiences from Andy Rouse during his time working with wild tigers. For budding tiger photographers there is a section on how to get great photographs and for tiger tourists there is a section on where to see tigers and some tips to make the best of the experience. Finally there is a an extensive conservation section with two superb conservation essays from the Zoological Society of London's tiger expert, Sarah Christie.
