The purpose of the First-Year Reading Experience is to provide new students with a common connection through a thought-provoking book. This year, the book is “The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival” by John Vaillant, which details the hunt for a man-eating Amur tiger in the remote Primorye region of Russia’s eastern border in the 1990s.

The nonfiction work published in 2010 addresses conservation and natural resources; culture and place; and the human-environment relationship, among other themes.

Vaillant will be at UM to discuss his book and his lecture is free and open to the public
