Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-- A tigress and her cubs leave their forest sanctuary to hunt. Although the herdsmen are understandably upset about the loss of a bullock and a camel, the ranger manages to dissuade them from poisoning the meat before the animals return to feed. Instead, they use firecrackers to frighten the predators back to the preserve. Cowcher's beasts are magnificent, graceful, and powerful. She is equally adept at portraying the scrubby trees and bushes of the landscape in which the herdsmen tend their flocks. The author effectively presents the dilemma that marks many efforts at wildlife conservation: how to preserve a species of animal whose habitat and natural activities bring it in conflict with people's expansion into new territories. She is honest in not offering an easy solution. While the situation has been resolved for the moment, there is no guarantee that the tigers and herdsmen will live in harmony. Visually and thematically, the book offers readers much to ponder as ecological issues receive increasing attention. --Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
