The Tiger : John Vaillant

A true story of vengeance and survival

The gripping tale of the hunt for a man-eating tiger across the forbidding landscape of Russia's Far East....

It s December 1997, and a man-eating tiger is on the prowl outside a remote village in Russia s Far East. The tiger isn t just killing people, it s annihilating them, and a team of men and their dogs must hunt it on foot through the forest in the brutal cold. As the trackers sift through the gruesome remains of the victims, they discover that these attacks aren t random: the tiger is apparently engaged in a vendetta. Injured, starving, and extremely dangerous, the tiger must be found before it strikes again.Beautifully written and deeply informative, The Tiger is a tale of man and nature that leads inexorably to a final showdown in a clearing deep in the taiga.
