After many stellar reviews, Knopf’s major nonfiction title of the season, Tiger by John Vaillant, was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition yesterday. The book is about a rare  tiger in remote Siberia who stalked the poacher that had wounded him and stolen his kill. Says the interviewer, “what has fascinated all of us is that the tiger is capable of vengeance. He waited and came back for [the man who shot him] later. “

The book rose to #27 on Amazon sales rankings, its highest rank to date. Several libraries are showing heavy holds on moderate ordering.
