Description

This book is the story of the work of one man Billy Arjan Singh, to protect Indian wild life in one small area in Himalayan foothills.

Tiger Haven - a small area in Himalayan foothills shelters one of the last remaining large herds of swampdeer in the world and it is here that Billy Arjan Singh has studied the chital, sambhar, leopard, marsh crocodile, hogdeer, and above all the tiger. His sensitive and detailed observations make this book a fascinating reading.
