9780002174497: Tiger: Portrait of a Predator
From Library Journal:

This is a splendidly written and superbly illustrated book about the tiger in India. Thapar, an Indian tiger expert, details the history of tigers, their near demise at the hands of "sports" hunters, and present day efforts to save this magnificent species. In addition, he presents many facts on their natural history and biology, particularly in the Ranthambhore Tiger Preserve. The 150 photographs of tigers and Indian wildlife are exceedingly beautiful. At under $25, no library could go wrong by purchasing this book. Highly recommended. Macmillan Natural Science and Times-Mirror Outdoor Life book clubs. Nicholas J. Volkman, Point Reyes Bird Observatory, Stinson Beach, Cal.

From School Library Journal:

YA Exquisite and rare photographs, coupled with a lively narrative, portray the life and habits of the Indian tiger. Particular emphasis is placed on "Project Tiger," the Indian government program which has helped to transform the tiger from the once-elusive endangered predator to the fearless hunter who freely roams the jungles. The close-up details of Indian wildlife make this useful for zoology and ecology classes.
