Between 1875 and 1925 more than 80,000 tigers were slaughtered. Over the next fifty years the massacre grew so alarming that the tiger was driven to the brink of extinction. Alongside this mindless butchery, there began a crusade to protect the tiger. This is a wonderfully readable anthology on the perils faced by tigers, and the travails of those trying to ensure it retains its regal, untamed magnificence. Valmik Thapar has spent twenty-five years working to save wild tigers. He has written eight books on tigers and presented the BBC film series 'Land of the Tiger'. He is the founder of the Ranthambhore Foundation which both works to save the tiger across India as well as networks on tiger-conservation issues across the planet. Printed Pages: 411 with 34 pictures.
