About this book

Covers every aspect of the Asiatic Lion, including the past and the present status, and likely future scenario, and also contains an account of about two decades of the author's observations on the big cats in the Gir forest. Dramatic events, interesting incidences, observations on habits and social life, hunting behaviour and cultural linkages of the indigenous people with the lion are narrated.

The book explains why the lion is forced to migrate to satellite areas in search of an alternative home. It also contains incidental information on wildlife and the local community and provides all relevant information related to the lion and the Gir forest. The management and conservation of the Gir forest and the lion during the last four decades, which has made Gir one of the best managed protected areas in the world, are summarized.
