Sooyong Park - The Great Soul of Siberia (2nd Hand Paperback)
There are five races of tiger on our planet and all but one live in tropical regions: the Siberian Tiger, Panthera tigris altaica, is the exception.
Mysterious and elusive, and with only 350 remaining in the wild, the Siberian tiger remains a complete enigma. One man has set out to change this. Sooyong Park has spent twenty years tracking and observing these elusive tigers.
Each year he spends six months braving sub-zero temperatures, buried in grave-like underground bunkers, fearlessly immersing himself in the lives of Siberian tigers. As he watches the brutal, day-to-day struggle to survive the harsh landscape, threatened by poachers and the disappearance of the pristine habitat, Park becomes emotionally and spiritually attached to these beautiful and deadly predators.
No one has ever been this close: as he comes face-to-face with one tiger, Bloody Mary, her fierce determination to protect her cubs nearly results in his own bloody demise.
Poignant, poetic and fiercely compassionate, The Great Soul of Siberia is the incredible story of Park's unique obsession with these compelling creatures on the very brink of extinction, and his dangerous quest to seek them out to observe and study them.
Eloquently told in Park's distinctive voice, it is a personal account of one of the most extraordinary wildlife studies ever undertaken. The Great Soul of Siberia is the incredible story of Park's unique obsession with these compelling creatures on the very brink of extinction, and his dangerous quest to seek them out to observe and study them.

"Wow, wow, wow. I absolutely loved this book. It took a few pages to grow on me - the descriptions of Ussuri geography right at the start were a bit of an obstacle as a North American totally unfamiliar with that part of the world - but man, am I glad I persevered!"
"What an incredible story! I was deeply touched by this book and equally so by the narrative used. It is captivating, descriptive, interesting, real and everything that can be felt is able to be felt within these pages."
