Wild Tigers of Ranthambhore

Tracking the many moods of the tiger, this book traces the progress of efforts to save the magnificent animal in India. Documenting tiger watching in Ranthambhore from the 1970s to the late 1990s, the second, enhanced edition discusses the tiger tragedy of winter-spring 2004-5 and argues for new and more radical initiatives to protect the animal and, by extension, wilderness itself. An impassioned plea for greater involvement of administrators and general public alike, this book is a must read for tiger enthusiasts, animal lovers, environmentalists, and the general reader.
