A great book on the Russian Far East and the Amur tiger

When I was traveling in the Russian Far East this summer. I read The Tiger, a non-fiction book by John Vaillant, It’s a well-written and thoroughly researched account of a man-eating tiger that killed two Russians near Krasny Yar a few years ago. One of Russians was a poacher. Svetlana knew many of the people mentioned in the book, and I had the chance to interview a couple of them.  I recommend it highly.
