The endorsements for Ms. Mills' book, from wildlife biologists, conservationists, and others, aptly cover this magnificent and bold work. They include:
"Blood of the Tiger is a heart-pounding read that takes us along on J. A. Mills's journey through the dark and sometimes dangerous realities of wildlife conservation. Mills is detective, double agent, and guide through a mapless labyrinth of politics, cultural differences, and the economics of greed and poverty. This book is a potent antidote to the despair and helplessness many of us feel observing the race to save tigers and other endangered species-a book that infuses one with renewed passion, determination, and hope."-Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club "Blood of the Tiger may be the most important book you read this year. It will make your blood boil-but also make your heart sing. J. A. Mills's courageous and captivating investigation of the trade in tiger body parts reveals some sickening secrets, as well as showcasing fearless, creative heroes. Read this roller coaster of a book and take action for tigers-before it's too late."-Sy Montgomery, author of Spell of the Tiger "Personal, engaging, shocking, informative. J. A. Mills exposes the dark secrets of the tiger trade and bares her soul, her passion, and her determination to bring about change. I believe there is still hope for wild tigers. Blood of the Tiger is real and raw, intelligent and compelling, and in the final analysis, a story that must not be ignored."-Will Travers, OBE, president of the Born Free Foundation My humble suggestion is to read this book and share it widely, and do something for tigers and the other magnificent and fascinating animals who are suffering at the hands of people who really don't give a damn about them. Blood of the Tiger is that good and thatimportant. And, it is an easy read -- though the content is not always that easy to read -- that should appeal to a wide audience. It would be perfect for courses in the conservation sciences.
