Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A gripping story of man pitted against nature’s most fearsome and efficient predator. This "travelogue about tiger poaching in Russia’s far east opens up a new genre ... [the] conservation thriller" (Nature).

Outside a remote village in Russia’s Far East a man-eating tiger is on the prowl. The tiger isn’t just killing people, it’s murdering them, almost as if it has a vendetta. A team of trackers is dispatched to hunt down the tiger before it strikes again. They know the creature is cunning, injured, and starving, making it even more dangerous. As John Vaillant re-creates these extraordinary events, he gives us an unforgettable and masterful work of narrative nonfiction that combines a riveting portrait of a stark and mysterious region of the world and its people, with the natural history of nature’s most deadly predator.

The Tiger

A great true story about the last frontier on our globe. A story so full of characters and a country yet so unknown and hostile. A must for all lovers of great stories of survival and "an eye for an eye" stories. I started the book and finished it without break.

Incredible detailed account of an incredible story

The pace is perfect, the facts are fascinating and detailed, and the story itself is absolutely enthralling. This is not just a book for tiger enthusiasts but for anyone in need of a good read. Highly recommended does not do it justice. It is simply a must read.

Amazing Story

One of the best books I have read in a long time. Impossible to know if the tale was embellished or not but it made for great reading regardless. Highly recommended.
