Fierce Beauty is a celebration of tigers, leopards, lions, ocelots, and other wild cats that inhabit The Institute of Greatly Endangered and Rare Species (TIGERS), a wildlife preserve in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The institute’s fifty acres are home to more than one hundred rare animals, from ligers (a hybrid cross between a male lion and a tigress) that stretch nearly twelve feet long to cheetahs capable of running seventy miles per hour.

Featuring dozens of exclusive new portraits from preeminent nature photographer Tim Flach, Fierce Beauty depicts the beauty, power, and grace of these remarkable creatures as never before. And with more than 300 images of wild cats and essays by such distinguished conservationists as zoologist and TV personality Jim Fowler, Dakota Zoo director Terry Lincoln, and a foreword by renowned actor Robert Duvall, Fierce Beauty enables readers to experience the vibrant form, bold markings, and striking personalities that make wild cats unique cohabitants of mankind.

"Look at the beautiful creatures displayed in this remarkable book. The experts call them 'animal ambassadors,' tigers, pumas, and other rare cats who go out to meet people and rekindle the lost connection we once had to the natural world. I applaud the work of Doc Antle, his associates, and the good folk in private preserves worldwide who dedicate their lives to protecting these masterpieces of nature from extinction. They allow us to hope that we might still turn things around so that our grandchildren can know the splendors that today are quickly fading into memory." —Robert Duval, from the foreword
