Book Details

Jhargram in West Bengal, a rocky arid region where no tiger has been seen for years, Royal Bengal or otherwise. But one morning a tiger’s pug marks appear out of nowhere and the villagers in the area are terrified.

Rohan, hearing the news, sets out to visit his uncle’s bungalow near by hoping to discover something. However, even before he reaches the place he finds himself in the heart of an adventure, stumbling upon jackals, elephants and, of course the elusive tiger, which is really lost. A tribal hunting festival is round the corner and things don’t look good at all. However, as Rohan knows, there is always someone he can depend on to come the rescue as long as he is intiger country.

…this is not a book to just skip through. You are so spellbound that you just don’t want to miss a word.
