When The Tiger Was King
The tiger, the largest living member of the cat family, has long been the undisputed ruler of India’s forests. Poaching and territorial encroachments have now diminished their numbers. When the Tiger was King recalls a time when tigers roamed the Indian subcontinent without fear of either man or beast. In this anthology, Ruskin Bond brings together some of the most engaging stories ever written about tigers, an apt tribute to the majesty and splendour of India’s dying kings.
