About this book
This book shows the many faces of the Korean tiger, from the most magnanimous to the most pusillanimous. Tigers have always had a special place in the hearts of Koreans. Having had to share their habitat with the most terrible animals from time immemorial, Koreans have spun myths and tales around the animal that made it their friend, guardian and mentor. Perhaps it was a clever survival strategy to turn their deadly enemy into their benefactor and guardian angel, even if they knew it was only wishful thinking.
