Abstract:

"Blood of the Tiger takes readers on a wild ride to save one of the world's rarest animals from a band of Chinese billionaires. Despite the tiger's beloved status, there may be fewer than three thousand left in the wild. At the same time, at least five thousand "domesticated" tigers have been reared on farms in China, not for traditional medicine but for the production of tiger-bone wine, tiger-skin decor, and gourmet cuisine enjoyed by the country's elite. J. A. Mills spent twenty years investigating the illicit wildlife trade and trying to stop the plot that threatens to transform this regal animal from jungle monarch into no more than a livestock commodity. In this memoir of geopolitical intrigue, Mills and a host of people she counts as heroes try to thwart a Chinese cadre's plan to launch billion-dollar industries banking on the extinction of not just wild tigers but also elephants and rhinos. Her journey takes her across Asia, into the jungles of India and Nepal, to Russia and Africa, traveling by means from elephant back to presidential motorcade, in the company of man-eaters, movie stars, and world leaders. Set against the backdrop of China's reawakening and ascendance to world dominance, Blood of the Tiger tells of a global fight to rein in the forces of greed on behalf of one of the world's most endangered species"--
