Product Description


"[F]ull of unusual anecdotes... sloth bears shuffle by, leopards prowl the campsite's perimeter, scores of brilliant birds flit overhead, and camp elephants reveal their personalities.... [T]he tiger and the environment it occupies have become... a symbol of what is at stake. Tiger Moon is a chronicle of this symbolism, told passionately and accurately." - Ronald L. Tilson, Natural History

4.0 out of 5 stars Tiger Moon 1 Oct 2009
Although this was written 20 years ago it gives a still relevant insight into the lives of tigers and other wildlife in the Chitwan National Park in Nepal. I will be spending time there at the end of the month so it was very interesting to learn more about what I am in for! A very enjoyable book. The last sentence reads "Nepal will not let the tiger slip away". Let's hope not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Short history of the author's experiences accompanying her husband doing fieldwork in Nepal's terai landscape 12 Feb 2014
By ian710 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Paints a broad overview of the Terai landscape and ecology, including local culture. Not as personal as Rabinowitz nor as comprehensive though, since it is quite brief. I imagine the situation has evolved quite a bit since those days. Am looking forward to checking it out for myself!
