Product Description

From Booklist

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.

Very useful primer... good choice for a general collection. (Nancy Bent Booklist 2004-11-01)

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)

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)

HASH(0xa9790d5c) out of 5 stars Bad Buy Tiger Book Stephen Mills Aug. 26 2013
By saga voyages & cruises - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I ordered a new copy of the Tiger book of Stephen Mills I am really disappointed that the book you send us is
obviously used (Omaha Public Library Sep 2004). The amount of US $ 88.96 is in this case much too high!
Please let us know what to do about this bad buy.

We look forward to your reaction.

This is a must have for any person trying to learn more about tigers and how to save them in this world. I also read tigers in red weather. This is an awesome compliment to that book.
