This is an amazing, riveting true story, with a fascinating look at Siberia, the people and the tigers. One of the most interesting reads for me in the last few years.

I loved this book! The author was able to see the side of the people and the tiger equally. I especially enjoyed the description of the land, the people and the politics of the area and the events which led up to the situation of those involved.

It has a couple of maps on one page in the front, which already makes it better than a lot of nonfiction books, however, it's next to impossible to know exactly where the area of detail is compared to the regional map.

Much more then a story about a tiger, that would of been enough. It really explores the world of the hunters and the hunted on both sides!

A really interesting book on many subjects. I originally bought this book to learn about the behavior of the Siberian Tiger, an endangered species. Along with the natural history of the tiger I learned how native people of this area had co-existed with the tiger. How more modern people tried to live with the tiger (not always succesfully) and about how the fall of the Soviet Union affected everything.
