In this generously illustrated narrative, Thapar documents the family life of three tigers and their cubs at every stage of the cubs' development. Providing remarkable insights into these secretive and nocturnal creatures, the author includes surprising new evidence that male tigers play a significant role in rearing their offspring. Valmik Thapar is a freelance photographer and documentary film maker who has spent 20 years in the Ranthambhore National Park, where the tigers are protected. His account will fascinate anyone with an interest in wildlife and animal behavior.

About the Author:

Valmik Thapar has, since 1977, been closely associated with the Ranthambore National Park, documenting the natural history of tigers and campaigning for their protection. A well-known documentary film-maker, he is the author of several books on tigers.

Review:


"This small book, a joy to read, is a brief introduction to the enormous conservation effort it takes to sustain wild tigers in todays humandominated landscapes. This account remains the most comprehensive available on the development of tiger cubs and their social milieu."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
