9780091799571: Monster of God: The Man-eating Predator in the Jungles of History and the Mind

Great and terrible flesh-eating beasts have always shared the landscape with humans. Now, of course, as humans spread and despoil the planet, predators may only survive on the glass barriers and chain-link fences. David Quammen is no armchair evolutionary theorist, and, in "The Song of Dodo", everything he writes about he has experienced first-hand. In this book, he examines the fate of lions in India's Gir forest, salt water crocodiles in northern Australia, brown bears in the mountains of Romania and Siberian tigers. He is equally intrigued by the traditional relationship between the great predators and the people who live among them, and weaves into his story the fears and myths that have haunted humankind for millennia.
