Overview

There is nothing quite like the thrill and awe of seeing a tiger in the wild, or hearing the rutting call of a Barasingha stag and the alarm call of a Spotted deer in its natural habitat. The tiger is India's iconic national animal, and Madhya Pradesh is virtually a tigerland. Places like Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench, Satpura and the nearby forests are home to the bulk of the population of tigers, their co-predators, prey and habitat of Central India. The state has a diversity of life forms owing to its rich, unique geographical and climatic attributes. The large number of protected areas in the state highlights the concern and efforts of the state government to conserve and protect its floral and faunal heritage.
Land of the Striped Stalker: Wildlife of Madhya Pradesh presents a broad picture of the prominent tiger reserves, protected areas and flora and fauna of Madhya Pradesh. The information provided in this book will not only help visitors plan their trips to the protected areas and tiger reserves of Madhya Pradesh, but will also foster awareness about the ecological imperatives to protect the wildlife of the region.

B&N should be embarrassed with how this book is delivered. Everyone of the beautiful pictures are upside down. There are spaces in words and in sentences such as on page 17 "on wildlife concer ns in sectors where account". This might be a great book in hardback but it's way to disjointed to try in e-format
