Title Profile & Character Information

The Tiger

A Siberian tiger attacks a poacher, leaving nothing but bone sticking from his boots. What's more, the great cat seems to have carefully planned its attack. Yuri Trush knows everything there is to know about tigers-he's a leader in their conservation-so, paradoxically, he gets the hard job of tracking the killer. Nature writer Vaillant reconstructs the hunt and the area's complex natural and cultural history. Lots of buzz; with a 100,000-copy first printing and a seven-city tour.
