But, unlike in other parts of Asia where tigers are rapidly being hunted to extinction, tigers in the Sundarbans are revered. With the skill of a naturalist and the spirit of a mystic, Montgomery reveals the delicate balance of Sundarbans life, explores the mix of worship and fear that offers tigers unique protection there, and unlocks some surprising answers about why people at risk of becoming prey might consider their predator a god.

Humbled because the more you learn about the Sundarbans and its tigers, you know you are never going to look at a tiger the same way again. Now I know how people feel when they feel inclined to worship something. Now I understand why the tiger is god in these saltwater swamps and why it is both feared and revered in equal measure.
