Promotional Information

"Tobias Lanz's book is well written and a fine job of research. He is obviously in awe of the tiger, the greatest of the cats and this emotion runs through the pages of his narrative, tinged with sadness at what he sees as the inevitable end of the king of the jungle in a land with too many people and ever-decreasing forest habitat. The book also takes a look into the past and the days of the Raj-the colonial years of the British and their love of tiger hunting-a passion which was nevertheless designed to allow a balance of preservation that ensured the survival of the great cats until now. His book is good reading for anyone planning a visit to India's parks and wildlife sanctuaries ... or just staying at home and seeing it all in the mind's eye, from the comfort of an armchair." -- Peter Byrne Executive Director, The International Wildlife Conservation Society Inc. "An absorbing account; full of information, passion and insight ... " -- Pankaj Sekhsaria
