Description

Tiger Tiger burning bright, In the forest of the night, What immortal hand or eye, Could frame the fearful symmetry. So wrote the eighteenth century English poet, William Blake, at a time when as many as a quarter of a million of these magnificent creatures freely roamed across many parts of the globe. Today the tiger is an endangered specie (the estimated total population as few as 2,500) and confined to small parts of Asia. Due in part to poaching and in part to loss of natural habitat, but all the responsibility of man, for the tiger has few other enemies to fear. This book of incredible photographs accompanied by sensitively written, descriptive text gives a close-up insight into the lives of these majestic big cats. It looks at the tigers' remaining territory, its habitats, hunting behaviour, family relationships and, indeed, its future; its very fight to survive.
