Overview

For time immemorial, the tiger has been an object of awe, reverence, and superstition. Its strength and ferocity are proverbial, its presence overpowering. Today, the tiger faces extinction. In the last century, it has dwindled from a population of 100,000 to barely 6,000. Out of 8 subspecies, 3 have become extinct in the last 60 years. Now, The Vanishing Tiger offers a rare look at the history and way of life of an endangered animal. Featuring 200 color photos, this is an essential book for anyone concerned about the future of our planet’s wildlife. Vivek R. Sinha is a former Secretary to the Government of India. Now a professional photographer, he and his wife Arati have spent the last two decades photographing the tiger in the wild.
