Once the world's largest marsupial predator, the doglike Tasmanian tiger ranged across Australia & as far north as New Guinea--after humans introduced dingoes to the area 4,000 years ago, the misnamed 'tiger' was driven to extinction everywhere except the island of Tasmania; this book chronicles its evolutionary origins & ill-fated encounter with European civilization as well as the ongoing fascination with the 'Tassie Toger' as a potent symbol of wildlife conservation.
