Tiger Moon

Tracking the Great Cats in Nepal

Tiger Moon is the powerful, poetic story of the Sunquists’ two years studying tigers in Nepal—traveling by elephant, avoiding a rhino attack, and learning to recognize individual tigers by roar. A new afterword tells the story of promising efforts to reconnect fractured Nepalese tiger habitats.
