From the publisher- "Search for the Tasmanian Tiger records the story of the thylacine, yesterday and today; the first contacts with settlers, the war against the animal, its slide towards extinction and its life in captivity. The various search parties, sent out this century in an attempt to locate and preserve survivors, are detailed. The conflicting opinions of experts, as to whether a live tiger can yet be discovered, are given. Supporting the text are many rare drawings and photographs of the tiger, the majority being previously unpublished."
