5. From Khushwant Singh

The eminent columnist and Author of a large number of best sellers

Recently, he has come out with another book The Vanishing Tiger : Wild Tigers Co-predators and Prey Species (Salamander). As the title claims, besides tigers, it has photographs of leopards, hyenas, wild dogs, foxes, variety of deer, a python and lots of birds. The pictures are spectacular and show animals and birds living in total freedom in their habitats. I haven’t seen any better.
