About this book

For time immemorial, the tiger has been an object of awe, reverence, and superstition, but today the tiger faces extinction. In the last century, it has dwindled from a population of 100,000 to barely 6,000. Out of 8 subspecies, 3 have become extinct in the last 60 years. In India, where 60 percent of the tiger population lives, their numbers have declined by 90 percent within the last century. This book offers a rare look at the history and way of life of an endangered animal, featuring 200 color photos. It is an essential book for anyone concerned about the future of our planet's wildlife.
