In an inspiring, personal book, Rabinowitz (executive director, Science and Exploration Program, Wildlife Conservation Society; Jaguar; Chasing the Dragon's Tail) recounts his struggles to protect the tiger population in Myanmar, formerly Burma. He describes his efforts to carve out a portion of the rugged Hukawng Valley as the world's largest tiger reserve while coping with a military dictatorship, insurgencies, and deforestation in one of the world's poorest countries. Rabinowitz makes his remarkable life accessible as he writes about his marriage, his leukemia diagnosis, his frustration with his father, and, even in the face of failing health, his inability to leave Myanmar behind. Ultimately, his book is about challenges, possibilities, and hope. Recommended for both public and academic libraries.
