From the dust jacket:

Undisturbed in the wilderness, the tiger is a majestic sight. It is the largest cat in the world, but it wanders alone, rarely seen by man.

Dr. George Schaller studied tigers in Kanha Park, a nature reserve in India. He followed their tracks, studied their social behavior, and observed them at water holes or feeding at a kill. Occasionally man and tiger came upon each other unawares.

Game hunting and growing human populations are endangering the tiger as a species. If it is to survive, an understanding of its habits is essential.

Millicent Selsam, the well- known writer of science books for children, and Dr. Schaller here describe the behavior of this magnificent animal.
