In Tiger, the largest of the big cats is presented in an intimate portrait. Mills examines what makes tigers such superb predators, looking at their prey and analyzing how tigers attack each type. Tiger behavior is both social and solitary, with courtship and mating, cub rearing, and observed differences in sociability covered in different chapters. Tigers are one of the few species that routinely kill humans, and yet fewer than 3 out of 100 tigers become human eaters. Tiger science, population, and conservation complete this very useful primer.

Generously loaded with color photos and scads of information about the habits, character and sadly precarious future of these magnificent creatures. (Globe and Mail 2004-08-21)
Very useful primer... good choice for a general collection. (Nancy Bent Booklist 2004-11-01)
While Mills obviously loves his subject, he does not sentimentalize it... This volume hits the perfect spot between a popular treatment and an overly academic study, and it will appeal to the serious amateur reader. (Nola Theiss Kliatt)
A realistic picture of tigers as predators, man-eaters, and species in peril in a book designed for natural history enthusiasts and family libraries. (Wildlife Activist)
What a beautiful book! The photographs are stunning and, together with the text, do a great job of communicating Mills' passion for tigers. (Brenda Dillon Resource Links)
