This Scientists In The Field-type book puts the reader into the boots of a scientist. Several questions are raised about the mysterious and unusual tigers that have no clear answers. The reader is challenged to speculate what it must be like for a scientist who would like to investigate these tigers. Easy to read maps help the reader better understand the tigers' shrinking range and numbers. Beautiful photographs are interspersed with the text as we meet native people who live and work near the tigers' territory. The culture of the native people and their paradoxical admiration and fear of the tigers is explained in their own words. The author also speaks directly to the reader throughout this very engaging book.
