"Vivid descriptions and imagery...retell a tale from deep within the jungle.” —Public Library Of Science
"Raise[s] an alarm about the state of this imperiled species ." -WhoWhatWhy.com
”Yes, photographer Steve Winter captures the sheer awe, beauty and power of one of the Earth’s most majestic creatures....That’s an understatement. But what adds to the book’s obvious visual appeal is how Winter and freelance writer Sharon Guynup...get to the heart of what all great journalism is about: Why it matters.”—TOM HENRY, environment writer, The Toledo Blade
"If you read only one book about species on the verge of extinction today, this is the one to read. Steve Winter's gorgeous photos of majestic tigers, coupled with Sharon Guynup's moving stories of why they are declining tells it all. We learn about the men and women dedicated to protecting the 3,500 tigers left in the wild and what we can do to help. Winter manages to capture the very essence of tiger in his stunning photographs. Beautiful book in every way." Jane Alexander, actor and conservationist

The authors, together with the biggest nonprofit organization devoted to saving these big and beautiful large cats called Panthera, are showing to readers and viewers their large collection of images and stories made in tigers’ own environment, collection on which they worked ten years.
Sharon Guynup stories are telling the sad truth about tigers’ illegal hunting and smuggling which even more increase the speed of extinction of these beautiful animals due to the natural prerequisites.
And looking on Steve Winter's photos the reader/viewer can only regret that she/he doesn’t have chance to find themselves in this world of tigers, that doesn’t have the opportunity to observe them in their natural environment.
On his photos, tigers are beautiful, mysterious animals magnificent in their ferocity.
“Tigers Forever” is at the same time informative read and a beautiful book to look at, a combination that makes it definitely recommended for those who love animals, wildlife and especially tigers.
Tigers Forever contains some of the rarest and most evocative images of tigers ever made. From the images in India of tigers gouging deep scratches in a marking tree, sending clear messages -- I am here, I am here! -- to the one of a kind photo of a wild Sumatran tiger with its glorious leonine mane, the book offers the kinds of glorious pictures that make your breath catch in wonder.
There are also the tragically necessary photos of tigers maimed or killed by poachers, captured to dance for gaping tourists, parceled into cellophane to cure the ills of traditional medicine's followers. But here they are balanced by the stories and images of the men and women working to save tigers, from the guards armed with guns to the scientists armed with data. Interspersed, among photographer Steve Winter's intimate tales of the struggles to reach the last strongholds of wild tigers and capture their glorious lives in pictures, are profiles of the real heroes of the war to save tigers: biologists, activists, other writers and photographers working daily to stop illegal tiger trade, safeguard dwindling habitat, and maintain the political and public will to ensure the tigers' survival.
Photographer Steve Winter and writer Sharon Guynup give us a beautiful and precious glimpse into the wild lives of tigers. I alternate soaring joy and plunging fear as I read Tigers Forever: joy that we share the Earth with such glorious animals; fear that someday we may not.Read more ›
