For lovers of adventure, danger, and extreme landscapes. Suspense is a constant throughout The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival by John Vaillant.

This is nonfiction that will appeal to hunters and outdoorsmen as well as the armchair adventurer. It’s about an episode in 1997 when a Siberian tiger in the remote Russian wilderness suddenly began to hunt for humans, terrorizing the countryside.

There are fascinating details about Siberian tigers (the stripes are on the skin, like tattoos, not just a part of their fur), the black market, survival in this extreme environment and the myths and beliefs surrounding these creatures.
