Description

"Great Soul of Siberia is the most intimate, poetic and immersive investigation of the Siberian tiger ever written."John Vaillant, author of The Tiger and The Golden Spruce

 

The remarkable story of one man’s all-consuming quest to follow three generations of Siberian tigers, and the tigers’ struggle to survive in a harsh landscape marked by poachers and a disappearing habitat.

 

Renowned tiger researcher Sooyong Park, a man who has dedicated much of his life to these amazing animals, reveals the heart of his work in Great Soul of Siberia. Like a cross between Jane Goodall and Timothy Treadwell, he fearlessly immerses himself in the lives of a family of notoriously reclusive Siberian tigers, following them across azalea-strewn mountains and painfully staking out through frigid Russian winters in underground bunkers to watch them. Inevitably, Park becomes emotionally and spiritually attached to these beautiful but dangerous apex predators and draws on more than twenty years of experience and research to describe the tigers’ losing battle against poaching and a diminishing habitat.
