This book tells the story of the author's work to protect a small part of India's once vast wildlife. The Tiger Haven stands in northern India, five miles from the Nepal border, where the plains of Uttar Pradesh give way to terai forests and then to the Himalayan foothills. It shelters one of the last remaining herds of swampdeer. Here, Billy Arjan Singh discusses the history of the reserve, surveys the forces competing for the land, and collects his many years of detailed research on its wildlife, which include chital, sambhar, leopard, marsh crocodile, hogdeer, and the tiger.
