About this book

Language: English

Imbued with the scent of the earth, green leaves washed by incessant rains, Spirit of the Tiger thrillingly captures all that is wonderful about the king of the jungle – stalking, hunting, sharing kills and fighting over them, mating, parenting, or sirnply cooling off in water holes and streams.

Turn over the pages and admire the brilliant photographs where tigers peer through and pose with their cubs and mates and other denizens of the jungle. This is accompanied by gripping, well-researched text that offers great insight into the life of tigers – from its evolution and spread, to its distinctive traits and ways of communication, finally tracing an era where the greatest hunter was itself hunted down for sport and by poachers, to the recent conservation efforts worldwide.

Spirit of the Tiger is also an exploration of what the striped cat means to us, from being the symbol of prowess and manliness to being revered and worshipped as Waghoba Dev, Amba and the White Tiger to being laughed at in Korean folktales.

The book is an ardent plea from Nature – to save our tigers before they dwindle into oblivion and we lose one of our most precious emblems of natural history.
