All the Way to the Tigers is full of personal growth, family history, and thrilling travel. February 2008: A casual afternoon of ice skating derailed the trip of a lifetime. Mary Morris spent her sabbatical in a wheelchair, undergoing two surgeries and extensive rehabilitation. On Easter Sunday, when she was supposed to be in Morocco, Morris was instead lying on the sofa reading Death in Venice, casting her eyes over these words again and again: “He would go on a journey. Not far. Not all the way to the tigers.” At that moment, Morris made a decision: When she was well enough to walk again (and her doctor wasn’t sure she ever would), she would go “all the way to the tigers.” So begins a three-year odyssey that takes Morris to India in search of the world’s most elusive apex predator. Morris connects deeply with these magnificent and highly endangered animals, and her weeks on a tiger safari also afford her a new understanding of herself. All the Way to the Tigers is an illuminating examination of healing, redemption, and what it means to be a solo woman on the road.
