Compelling account of the authors' two years amongst the elusive and highly endangered tigers of Nepal's Royal Chitwan National Park. The Sunquists tracked the tigers using radio collars, and gathered a wealth of information on the previously little-understood private life of these powerful predators. 2002 reprint has a new afterword describing efforts to reconnect fractured Nepalese habitats.
[F]ull of unusual anecdotes... sloth bears shuffle by, leopards prowl the campsite's perimeter, scores of brilliant birds flit overhead, and camp elephants reveal their personalities.... [T]he tiger and the environment it occupies have become... a symbol of what is at stake. Tiger Moon is a chronicle of this symbolism, told passionately and accurately. - Ronald L. Tilson, Natural History
