Review

This book, like others that deal with environmental destruction and conservation efforts, takes the reader through emotional ups-and-downs, from deep sadness at the loss of tigers to joy at learning about the dedication and progress being made trying to save them. While it's tempting to just look at the mesmerizing, beautiful, heart-wrenching and thought-provoking photographs, the accompanying text is worth reading and illuminating on many levels. It is a very rich book. National Geographic photographer Steve Winter and co-author Sharon Guynup not only tell the story of the endangered tiger, but also of how the images were captured, what is being done to prevent their destruction, details unique to the tiger populations in different regions and more. I especially enjoyed reading the profiles of individual scientists, activists, veterinarians and other interested parties. Their hard work on behalf of tigers and habitat is inspiring.
