Editorial Reviews

Look at the beautiful creatures displayed in this remarkable book. The experts call them 'animal ambassadors,' tigers, pumas, and other rare cats who go out to meet people and rekindle the lost connection we once had to the natural world. I applaud the work of Doc Antle, his associates, and the good folk in private preserves worldwide who dedicate their lives to protecting these masterpieces of nature from extinction. They allow us to hope that we might still turn things around so that our grandchildren can know the splendors that today are quickly fading into memory." -Robert Duval, from the foreword "
