Tiger conservation is one of today's most pressing environmental issues. From a world population of approximately 100,000 tigers in 1900, these majestic carnivores have dwindled to less than 3,500 in the wild today, much of this due to poaching and habitat destruction. The author tells the fascinating story of one man's quest to save the man-eating tigers of Nepal. 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.
