A great nature book has a compelling story, riveting facts, interesting people, and the ability to create reader awareness about its subject. This book qualifies as great, and has the added distinction of being narrated by George Guidall, who has a way of making most topics sound important. It's a short book, 4 tapes, but its message is dire: Tigers are dying out because of poaching and development, and they cannot be replaced. Guidall captures this message and delivers it with every breath. He is informative without being overbearing, and credible without browbeating. Plus, his pronunciation of Russian places and people is superb. He is exactly what this audiobook needs to lay out the situation and consequences surrounding tigers and their survival. R.I.G.
