Comments The Great Soul of Siberia

  • Paul

    The true king of the jungle is the tiger; lions live out on the savannah. These magnificent creatures have carved a niche for themselves in the humid regions, but the largest and most elusive tiger shuns the warmth of the tropics, preferring icy cold wastelands. This is the Siberian Tiger. It is thought that there are only 350 or so remaining in the wild and so little is known about them and their habits that they are one of the most mysterious big cats.As the spectre of climate change raises it [...]

    The Great Soul of Siberia is a natural history book written by Sooyong Park, who has studied the Siberian tigers for more than twenty years. Having filmed numerous documentaries of the Siberian tigers, this book follows a few seasons of his research and field observations through a set group of tigers. This book has many things going for it. First, it’s written by someone with infinite direct and personal knowledge of these animals; their nature, their history and their relationships with huma [...]

    I absolutely ADORED this book! Beautifully and lovingly written this was a deeply moving and touching story. Also a fascinating account of the natural world of tigers and the ussuri region as a whole.Will hopefully post a full review soon!

  • Jarvo

    We are used to hyperbole in the world of books, but this is a case where words 'passion' and 'obsession' are understatements. For year on end the author has spent Spring through Autumn surveying territories where tigers roam to check on the ecosystem of which they are a part. The remaining six months are spent in solitary confinement in a bunker approximately 2m square, in temperatures which reach -30 C, in the hope of seeing and filming tigers. And the miracle of the book is that it actually ma [...]

  • Heather Macadam

    To read this book is to fall in love with three generations of Siberian Tigers, whose cubs we come to care for as deeply as we care for our own children. With the kind of courage these great cats embody, Sooyong Parks endures the loneliness and cold of the Siberian winter in order to reveal the world of these secretive creatures and he delivers them to us with the lyric beauty of a modern-day Thoreau. The Great Soul of Siberia is a remarkable, and heart-rending story written by a poet whose own [...]

  • Liz

    Wow, wow, wow. I absolutely loved this book. It took a few pages to grow on me - the descriptions of Ussuri geography right at the start were a bit of an obstacle as a North American totally unfamiliar with that part of the world - but man, am I glad I persevered!I don't think there's been a book that's made me feel this way (i.e. thoroughly immersed in an epic adventure story that expands my imagination's horizons regarding what is possible or even knowable) since reading a battered copy of Kon [...]

  • Lynda

    This book about life and death and the tigers of Siberia is stunning. It is a closely observed account of the changing of the seasons in the Ussari forest of Siberia, and the comings and goings of the tigers. Each tiger is a fully realised personality and the tension as they play and hunt and die is immense. The tigers are a marvel, but then so is Sooyong Park, the author. He spends the long Siberian winters living alone in underground bunkers, 2 metres by 2 metres, minimising all traces of hims [...]

  • Lauren Jenkins

    I appreciate learning something completely new from a book, and I have a fondness for interesting books on nature. This was both. I'll have to dig up some more of the author's work on tigers -- apparently, there is much more of it. His beautiful descriptions of the Siberian tiger's environment and his genuine admiration and fondness for the tigers run throughout the book and bring the scenes to life. His unbelievable dedication to researching the tiger's habits, patterns, personalities -it's so [...]

  • Debbie

    This book was recommended to me by a friend, for which I am extremely grateful as I don't think I would have ever discovered it by myself. It is a sad, immersive account of one of the most beautiful and endangered animals on our planet - the majestic Siberian tiger.The author, Sooyong Park, is a naturalist and photographer who has spent the last 20 years learning as much about Siberian tigers as he possibly can, with the aim of trying to halt their decline and educate people about these beautifu [...]

  • ChocoKraken

    An accurate reportage that lasted a life. I felt overwhelmed by the passion with the author immerged himself in this fantastic journey of knowledge in the world of one of the most beautiful creatures on earth. If you love nature and you love to feel side by side with the reporter facing tigers and almost feel you could reach out for them you'll definitely enjoy this.

  • Jacquie ⭐️

    It's candid approach and ability from the first page to engage you and witness through Sooyong's eyes - the fascination of the diversity of tigers. Very interesting and true account. Great train read!!!

  • Rachel

    Beautifully written, poignant and sad this book is a great commentary on the fate of tigers in the wild in our modern era. The fact that Soonyong Park has dedicated his life to these beautiful creatures gives me hope that they will survive. A must read for any nature fans

  • Richard

    Perhaps an issue of translation to English or even just the writers style but I just didn't like how this book was written. I appreciate the writers story and dedication to Tigers but the book in itself wasn't for me.

  • Travis

    Good book. Probably the most dedication I've ever heard of when studying a species.

  • Julie Michaud

    I was so engaged in this book.

  • Sivakumar Anandan

    one of the best nature books! Bloody Mary and arsenal of learnings were splendid !

  • Peter Housley

    A wonderful book - best of the year so far

  • depask

    The Great Soul of Siberia is, if nothing, a strenuous exercise in the patience demanded by nature, of which Sooyong Park is an expert. "To wait for a tiger is to wait for yourself" Park writes, presumably in the midst of a six month stakeout from a cramped underground bunker with only mice for company; as a filmmaker, observer and enthusiast, his work in the field seems unparalleled and the choice to share such work and experiences in a book for all to relish and relive is a privilege for those [...]

  • M.i.

    In great soul of Siberia, Sooyong park has woven a tale of nature, the outer reaches of Siberia and the magnificent beasts that dwell there. Not only does he portray these amazing creatures in a way that beautifies them but also lets the reader into the delicateness of the lives they live in a region where man remains a constant threat. It will truly be a shame if we lose these creatures completely and from all the warnings given in this book, we are quite close to that.

  • enricocioni

    A very, very good book. Sooyong Park sacrificed a significant portion of the last two decades to Siberian tigers, sitting for months at a time in tiny 2x2x2 m bunkers hoping for the occasional shot of the elusive creatures. This book has everything you'd expect from such a man: poetic descriptions of the tigers' habitat, high-adrenaline moments of terror when Park is spotted by the tigers, intimate descriptions of the animals relaxing or playing with their cubs when they think no one is watching [...]

  • Rick

    I loved reading this on my breaks at work or while reading the bus. It felt like I was being led through a forest by an exceptionally calm & curious man who could read nature in all the tracks & traces left by its residents. I found the author to be remarkably considerate of his subject, Siberian tigers, and enjoyed his insistent effort to read the mind of the animal, to look at things from its perspective. It's easy to forget how vision-centric we are compared to other creatures for who [...]

  • Lizzie (Littlehux) Huxley-Jones

    As a child, I used to watch a lot of nature documentaries, particularly one called The Realm of the Russian Bear, which also featured beautiful Siberian tigers. I was obsessed with their grace and beauty, and their power.The Great Soul of Siberia filled me with the glee I felt as a child, seeing those striped elegant creatures glide through the snow.Sooyung Park has been studying and following tigers in the Ussuri region of Russia for over 20 years. Not only is this book an ode to the great cats [...]

    "On the sandy beach as clean as the beginning of time, a single line of flower-shaped paw prints appeared"There are many things to like about this book: the huge amount of information about Siberian tigers and their behaviour, the beautiful descriptions of the Ussuri forest, Sooyong Park's dedication to his work as well as his deep respect for the natural world and all its inhabitants. But I think what I liked most about this book is that it also shows respect to the reader by following the "sho [...]

  • Will

    [deep breath]Ok, so there is tiger death in this book. It's not a spoiler, unless you are unfamiliar with the concept that all life on earth eventually comes to an end. In that case, yeah, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.If your heart can survive tiger death, this book is really lovely. The translation of Park's writing is far more poetic and evocative than traditional nature/science writing, and this book benefits greatly from it. His methods are worth reading about, and the straightforward [...]

  • Julian Walker

    A beautifully written and sensitively descriptive homage to one of nature's most majestic animals.Sooyong Park perfectly captures the patience of nature study and blends it with his respect and awe for three generations of one tiger family. I read this in a couple of sittings and was so captivated by the sheer poetry and power of his writing that I have already recommended this to many friends.A genuine pleasure and an emotional read.

  • Joseph Reynolds

    This is a strangely affecting love poem to the Siberian tiger. Park and translator evoke the landscape well. They also put you right there: the exhausting mind-numbing boredom of waiting, the heart-in-mouth joy when you see the tigers, and the occasional terror. Also the sadness. Great sadness for these incredible beasts.

  • Heather Christensen

    What an incredible story! I was deeply touched by this book and equally so by the narrative used. It is captivating, descriptive, interesting, real and everything that can be felt is able to be felt within these pages. I chanced upon this book and I'm glad that I did.

  • Dawn Friedel

    Wonderfully movingYou can experience the same emotions as you read the words. A wonderful depiction of the life of tigers and those who vow to protect them. Hopefully they will live on for years to come so we have more than just words and pictures to learn from.

  • Tweela S. Houtekamer

    A bit too much detail at times. Engaging and occasionally heart breaking stories about the lives and futures of these amazing creatures. Many beautifully descriptive passages. So impressive that there are researchers in the world this committed to the natural world.

  • Sanjay

    Excellent and a classic literature on the tigers living in the Russian far east. Very passionate and poetic.
