The tiger has always evoked awe, fear, and fascination. Ranthambhore: 10 Days in the Tiger Fortress creates an engrossing, unforgettable portrait of this magnificent creature, featuring many images of tigers in the wild never before captured on film. The book is as much about the rich and vibrant habitat that makes Ranthambhore one of the finest places to watch wild tigers up close, as about a man who over the years has developed a special intimacy with the tiger.
Valmik Thapar, after thirty-three years of tiger-watching, finds himself in Ranthambhore once again where he confesses spending his finest ten-day stretch ever. Tigers reigning over lakes, forts, ruins, chhatris, and Ranthambhore's famous 600-700-year-old banyan tree - the more than 200 color photographs bring to life every incident that takes place as the author tracks six tigers in the course of ten days. Together, they create a visual continuity perhaps experienced only in motion pictures.
