Spell of the tiger : the man-eaters of Sundarbans by Sy Montgomery( Book )
7 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 590 libraries worldwide
Sundarbans, a huge swampy area of India and Bangladesh on the Bay of Bengal, remains the largest tract of mangrove forest on earth. It is also the only place where tigers eat men. Elsewhere in Asia, tigers are being hunted to extinction, but here they are the hunters, routinely carrying away fishermen, honey-gatherers and woodcutters. Although they fear tiger attacks, the men and women of Sundarbans have turned the tiger into an object of veneration, itself a strange kind of earth worship. Sy Montgomery, author of Walking with the Great Apes and The Good Good Pig, has devoted years to this mist-shrouded, forest-screened region, and here she tells all about the peculiar relationship between tigers and their human prey. She lets us understand how it feels to know that as a human being you are, to the tiger, merely a source of meat.--From publisher description
