Tiger, Lord Of The Jungle
October 2010: The authors use text and images to stir us to action to protect the tiger. They ask with some consternation: “Is the tiger on the road to extinction because we aren’t interested in it? Because of a lack of support for its cause? Or a bit of both?”
The book puts down the tiger’s history, its ability to adapt and its tumultuous relationship with humans and concludes with a chapter on its “unwritten future” in which the authors underscore the imperative of balancing long-term ecological and economic needs. With good production values, the book is yet another addition to the growing list of tiger books being published across the globe.
