We have entered the age of extinction. Soon many of the animal kingdom's most extraordinary creatures will no longer roman free, hunted and hounded out of existenceincluding one of its most magnificent denizens, the wild tiger.

For there he hoped to achieve a dangerous, great and perhaps foolhardy goal before dire circumstances and human greed rendered it unattainable: to enter the last natural domain of the tiger, unarmed and on food¦and to confront the majestic beast face-to-face, eye-to-eye. Of Tigers and Men is an exceptional real-life adventure storyone of those rare and remarkable books that can honestly change the way we see our world.
