The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival
'Enriched by sparkling sidetracks into nature and history, this enthralling true-crime narrative takes us on a snowbound search not only for a beast but for a motive. Like its superb quarry, Vaillant's book moves with grace and stealth, covers a vast terrain and shakes the observer's soul' (Independent 20101003)'The structure of Vaillant's nonfiction hunting tale echoes that of "Moby-Dick," alternating a gripping chase narrative -- the search, in the late 1990s, for a man-eating Amur tiger in the Primorye region, on Russia's far eastern border -- with dense explanations of the culture and ecology surrounding the chase.' (New York Times 20100909)'The Tiger also counts as a supreme example of true-crime writing driven by wide-angle empathy and compassion. Some readers may choose to shelve it, not among cosy wildlife yarns, but with Truman Capote's In Cold Blood.' (Boyd Tonkin, Independent 20100910)'This is an altogether different kind of manhunt story . . . . The pursuit culminates in a breathtaking stand-off of man versus cat in a forest clearing - a denouement every bit as explosive and surprising as the raid in Abbottabad earlier this week.' (Hampton Sides, Wall Street Journal 20100903)'A personal favourite of mine, an extraordinary account of a tracker on the trail of a Siberian man-eating tiger in 1997. Along the way we get a load of tiger facts and a beautiful portrait of a forbidding region. It is a stunning, lovely, lovely book.' (Bookseller 20100904)'extraordinary ... a brilliantly told tale of man and nature' (Tim Flannery, New York Review of Books 20100828)'a remarkable story, exceptionally well told.' (Financial Times 20110912)'The Tiger is the sort of book I very much like and rarely find. Humans are hard-wired to fear tigers, so this book will attract intense interest.' (Annie Proulx 20100827)'The Tiger takes us on a journey to the raw edge of civilization, to a world of vengeful cats and venal men, a world that, in Vaillant's brilliant telling, is simultaneously haunting and enchanting.' (Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers 20100829)'This book must be read by everybody who is interested in the conservation of wildlife. It takes you to the Russian wilderness to meet face-to-face with the Siberian tiger.' (Temple Grandin, author of Animals in Translation 20100830)'An absolutely superb book.' (George Schaller, Wildlife Conservation Society & Panthera 20100929)'A masterpiece' (Outside 20100831)'Brilliant' (US Library Journal 20100831)'Few writers have taken such pains to understand their monsters, and few depict them in such arresting prose.' (New York Times Book Review 20100910)'instant classic' (Calgary Herald 20100910)'astoundingly gripping' (Toronto Star 20100910)'read this fine, true book in the warmth, beside the flicker of firelight. Read it and be afraid. Be very afraid.' (Simon Winchester, Globe and Mail 20100910)Breathtakingly exciting (Vancouver Sun 20100910)'A hair-raising tale in which conservation, madness and even murder collide.' (Montreal Gazette 20100910)'fascinating and compelling plot' (Ottawa Citizen )'Overall, this is a superb book -- hyper-intelligent, wonderfully well-written, with a great cast, both human and animal, and at its heart, the amazing and truly chilling story of one tiger's winter campaign of murderous revenge.' (Daily Mail )'Riveting' (The Washington Post )'Not so incidentally, if ever a nonfiction author has used the techniques of fiction any better to recount a real-life narrative, it is difficult to imagine who that author would be.' (The Seattle Times )By all means read Vaillant's magnificent book about the animal: The Tiger offers readers a shiver-inducing portrait of a predator that has been revered - and feared - like no other animal. (San Francisco Chronicle )'Enthralling' (Christian Science Monitor )'Writing in a vigorous, evocative style . . . Vaillant paints a haunting portrait of man's vexed relationship with nature.' (Publishers Weekly )'Brad Pitt has bought the movie rights to "The Tiger," but with all due respect to Mr. Pitt, there's no way the movie will match Mr. Vaillant's book.' (Washington Times )'part natural history, part Russian history and part thriller; it tells a gripping and gory story of what it's like to stalk - and be stalked by - the largest species of cat still walking the Earth.' (National Public Radio (USA) )'This masterful account of the terror, death and grief caused by a man-eating Amur tiger in Russia in 1997 is as mesmerising, rangy and relentless as the creature in question.'
