”Yes, photographer Steve Winter captures the sheer awe, beauty and power of one of the Earth’s most majestic creatures....That’s an understatement. But what adds to the book’s obvious visual appeal is how Winter and freelance writer Sharon Guynup...get to the heart of what all great journalism is about: Why it matters.”—TOM HENRY, environment writer, The Toledo Blade
"If you read only one book about species on the verge of extinction today, this is the one to read. Steve Winter's gorgeous photos of majestic tigers, coupled with Sharon Guynup's moving stories of why they are declining tells it all. We learn about the men and women dedicated to protecting the 3,500 tigers left in the wild and what we can do to help. Winter manages to capture the very essence of tiger in his stunning photographs. Beautiful book in every way." Jane Alexander, actor and conservationist
