A touching account of the tigers that came into the author's life, this brilliant volume concludes with inspiring chapters on tiger conservation.

In July 1976, Arjan Singh collected a tiger cub from Tycross Zoo. Tara, as she was named, was brought to Tiger Haven, the author's farm in Uttar Pradesh and reared by him in the hope of returning her to the wild..

This is Tara's story. An intimate account of her life in Tiger Haven and her relationship with the authors, of the subs she bore to a wild mate and her gradual acclimatization to her natural habitat.
