Where do wego from here? Will there be a miracle that saves the tiger? Can the government act in time? Will the enormous illegal trade in tiger skins that is rampant in Tibet be stopped?The book contains annexures with correspondence between the author and the Prime Minister's Office, and includes a Note of Dissent to the report submitted by the Task Force.
