More Information
Tiger conservation is one of today?s most pressing environmental issues. From a world population of approximately 100,000 tigers in 1939, these majestic carnivores have dwindled to less than 3,000 in the wild today, much of this due to poaching & habitat destruction. A true adventure tale from the author of the award-winning The Soul of the Rhino, Bones of the Tiger tells the fascinating story of one man?s quest to save the man-eating tigers of Nepal. Set in Royal Chitwan National Park, it is also a timely story, given that 2010 is, in much of Asia, the Year of the Tiger. Unique in explaining the real story of atypical tiger behavior? behavior that ultimately leads to conflict with humans, sometimes resulting in death?this book also includes stunning photos by renowned Japanese photographer Mashahiro Iijima.
