The Tiger has always been associated with India as hunting the tiger was the acme of sport hunting. Though focused on hunting, considerable data is available on its natural history from observant hunters who had to study the habits and behaviour of the animal if they were to stay alive. This is the only book that documents over 100 years of archival literature on the history of the tiger from the era when it was considered as an animal not on the verge of extinction but an animal to be exterminated! This book contains information on its origin and distribution, habitat, prey, mating habits, and the reason for its extinction.
