Description


What makes tigers unique among our planet's dozens of cat species? The Concise Book of Tigers, by award-winning writer-naturalist and historian Lochlainn Seabrook, readily answers this and many other questions concerning these magnificent felines


Packed with fascinating details that are often overlooked by other natural history writers, this brief but informative work, on what the author calls "tigerology," contains 11 in-depth chapters that cover the complete ecology and life history of tigers. Topics include the basics of tiger science (vision, hearing, coloration, vocalizations, etc.); tigers in superstition, religion, and literature; where to see tigers; how to identify them; and tiger and habitat conservation. The book also contains a detailed field guide of the currently recognized 12 tiger subspecies (six living, six extinct) found across Eurasia, with each entry listing the subspecies' common and scientific names, identifying traits, distribution, habitat, feeding and hunting habits, enemies, population, life span, conservation status, and comments by the author.


Densely illustrated with 150 color photos and black-and-white drawings, Col. Seabrook also includes a complete list of the world's 41 felids, an extensive bibliography (with suggested reading material), and a comprehensive index of every cat referenced in the book. Written in the author's usual lucid and compact yet educational style, this family friendly Guide to Nature's Most Remarkable Cats is a must-have for tiger lovers, tiger-watchers, and animal lovers in general. A wonderfully unique addition to the nature writing genre, with its emphasis on tiger conservancy, The Concise Book of Tigers is a treasure trove for tigriphiles and an ideal title for gift shops at tiger centers, tiger sanctuaries, wildlife reserves, zoos, and natural history museums. Available in paperback and hardcover.


Acclaimed neo-Victorian scholar and outdoorsman Lochlainn Seabrook, whose literary works range from astronomy to zoology, is one of the most prolific and popular writer-historians in the world today. A Kentucky Colonel and a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal, he is the author and editor of nearly 100 educationally enlightening books (currently) for all ages. Described by his readers as "game changers" and "life-altering," his voluminous writings have introduced hundreds of thousands to vital facts that have been left out of our mainstream books. A 7th generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage, and a former zoo keeper, ranch hand, and hunting outfitter, Col. Seabrook is a lifelong writer with a 45-year background in science, history, and religion. He is the author of the bestseller The Concise Book of Owls, as well as the monumental reference, North America's Amazing Mammals: An Encyclopedia for the Whole Family - the world's first scientific animal guide to include an entry on Sasquatch.
