Editorial Reviews

Review

“A monumental achievement in prose and images. The book is so riveting—nothing short of a hymn about the most endangered of all the big cats—that no reader could conceive of a world without them.”—Tom Lovejoy, conservation biologist

"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

Judging by the quality of this collection it is evident that Winter and Guynup gave everything they had–and more–to make it a reality. Having worked in the human/animal conflict field I understand the obstacles one must overcome to get the one shot that tells the whole story...so I can only imagine the struggles and hardships Winter must have gone through to make every image an award winning picture. When someone like Winter devotes his entire life to not only the craft of art making but also making a difference in our world, consider it your duty to ask why. This book might change your life, and I can't imagine you'd ever say that about another picture book sitting on your coffee table collecting dust. You'd be a fool not to put this book in your shopping cart.

“Tigers Forever” by National Geographic photographer Steve Winter and writer Sharon Guynup is beautiful collection of tigers’ stories and pictures, about this magnificent animal that slowly becoming extinct.

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.

Rarely do you get both in a book like this - photos that are mesmerizing and a narrative that is equally enthralling. You will be blown away by the pictures but also by the information. This is a book to not only put on your coffee table or in your library but to share with friends. Like other Nat Geo books, Tigers Forever is beautiful and enjoyable, but this one also clearly aims to raise awareness about the devastating plight of the tiger and thus help to prevent their extinction in the wild. That's a lot to hope for in a book, but this one is worthy of the task. Buy it. Share it.

Tigers Forever -- even the title is inspiring -- is visually amazing. The cover is the beginning, as this beautiful mother and her cub look at us as if asking us to make room for tigers in the world. Beyond the photos, Sharon Guynup tells Steve Winter's stories about the circumstances tigers face, the dangers decimating their population, and the efforts being made to save them. Putting them together makes a powerful message of how these iconic cats have been pushed to the edge, but can be rescued from the brink. This book can open our eyes and hearts to making the changes that will allow us all to live together.

This moving portrayal of the plight of the tiger is captivating and informative for all readers, regardless of age. Steve Winter's photographs are stunning and intimate, revealing tigers so beautifully and with allure, that you eagerly keep turning the page to experience more of this great journey documented in this book. The text by journalist, Sharon Guynup, perfectly compliments the photographs with insightful and important information that spreads the word of the tiger's beauty as well as its perilous state. The passion and dedication that drives the book's authors to reverse the tiger's decline leaves the reader with a shared mission to support their cause and help preserve the tiger in its natural habitat.

This is not my usual kind of book purchase (nonfiction, photography) but after seeing the author on CBS News, I decided to purchase. This is truly moving -- we hear about tigers being endangered, but I had no idea how great the threat is. These creatures are gorgeous; the images and narrative seamlessly weave a portrait of how tigers live in the wild and in captivity. This book is beautifully produced, inside and out. Highly recommended for readers of all ages.

For me, the most poignant image in this stunning new volume is on page 119. It's the expression on the face of the little girl who'd come to see Sheila, an 18 year old Sumatran tiger killed in a zoo two days earlier, that reminds you how much we stand to lose if we don't learn the lessons that Tigers Forever shares so well.

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.
