Synopsis

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 existence—including one of its most magnificent denizens, the wild tiger.
 
It was this sobering realization of impending tragedy that inspired naturalist and safari leader Richard Ives to embark on a stirring adventure and spiritual journey across India, Nepal, and Southeast Asia—meeting enigmatic wanderers and crusading “tiger men” as he made his way through some of the planet’s most breathtaking but diminishing wild places. 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 story—one of those rare and remarkable books that can honestly change the way we see our world.
