Tiger The Story of the Indian Tiger
by Kailash Sankhala

This is more than a definitive study of an animal, it is also a personal adventure story. From his early days as a trainee forester, when, encouraged by his tutor, he personally shot and killed a tiger, to his long-life attempts to make amends for that crime,

For five years Sankhala served as head of the world-famous zoo at Delhi, where his firmly held views on what zoos should be initially aroused anger, and later admiration. He had confrontations too with the Indian tourist establishment, and with the poachers who wished to make quick money out of tiger skins. Then in 1972 he was appointed head of 'Project Tiger', a worldwide attempt to save the Indian tiger from extinction: five years later he gave up his job with the problem solved.
