Written with a personal touch, the book focuses on 35 years of Valmik Thapar's engagement with tigers in Ranthambhore National Park and across India. Thapar takes us on a journey of a lifetime from Ranthambhore's ancient and hallowed history and the story of the last three decades and more of tiger conservation in India to the questionable role of the government to more heartening stories of how local villagers took up conservation-related activities in the quest to find solutions to save the striped predator. This book is a tribute to the late Fateh Singh Rathore. Intertwined with the narrative is the story of a special friendship between Thapar and Rathore-a partnership that witnessed the duo fighting tooth and claw to try and turn adversity in the tiger's favour.
