About this book

An intensely personal and richly illustrated book which evokes the special appeal of India's forests and the men who have fought to save the tiger from extinction. Jim Corbett, the great destroyer of man-eaters, who became a still greater conservationist; Billy Arjan Singh, the Spartan farmer who despises hunters and hunting, and carved out a national park on his own; Fateh Singh Rathore, who often risked his life in defence of the jungles in his charge; and Valmik Tharpar, who now champions a new kind of conservation that may just save the tiger, a species which seems doomed to extinction.
