“Tiger Country is Tasmania… specifically an area where the Tasmanian Tiger was once found.  In this book, the author tells how she penetrated to many remote parts of Tasmania, often as almost the first woman to visit them, and found that the term “Tiger Country” was a most suitable description for the wild and rugged areas of the Island State.  And in her wanderings, she met many folk who have learnt how to wrest a living from the lonely, inhospitable land.   Many of them are direct descendants of the pioneers and manifest the same cheerful self-reliance as their forebears.  Others came from the cities and find special satisfaction in lives of hard toil for small rewards.”
