It’s December 1997, and a man-eating tiger is on the prowl outdoors a distant village in Russia’s Far East. The tiger isn’t simply killing folks, it’s annihilating them, and a crew of males and their canines should hunt it on foot by the forest within the brutal chilly. As the trackers sift by the grotesque stays of the victims, they uncover that these assaults aren’t random: the tiger is outwardly engaged in a vendetta.

We meet the native tribes who for hundreds of years have worshipped and lived alongside tigers, even sharing their kills with them.

And we come to know their descendants, who, crushed by poverty, have turned to poaching and additional upset the pure steadiness of the area. This historic, tenuous relationship between man and predator is on the very coronary heart of this exceptional guide. Throughout we encounter stunning theories of how people and tigers could have developed to coexist, how we could have developed as scavengers fairly than hunters, and the way early Homo sapiens could have match seamlessly into the tiger’s ecosystem. Above all, we come to know the endangered Siberian tiger, a very smart super-predator that may develop to 10 toes lengthy, weigh more than 600 kilos, and vary day by day over huge territories of forest and mountain. Beautifully written and deeply informative, The Tiger circles round three primary characters: Vladimir Markov, a poacher killed by the tiger; Yuri Trush, the lead tracker; and the tiger himself. It is a completely gripping story of man and nature that leads inexorably to a ultimate showdown in a clearing deep within the taiga. From the Hardcover version
