Praise

“Fact: Mary Morris is the best travel writer alive. I am humbled by her skill at using the bones of a journey to get to the heart of herself. She’s a master of the craft.”
–Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light and Small Great Things

“Mary Morris has long been a master memoirist, and All the Way to the Tigers is among her finest works. Brave, layered, complex, and deeply human, this is a story of a woman traveling alone, only now she is older, wiser, and has even more to teach us about the lengths to which we must go to reach our deepest selves. I loved this book.”
–Dani Shapiro, New York Times bestselling author of Inheritance and Hourglass

“In All the Way to the Tigers, Mary Morris so seamlessly combines her interior and exterior experiences, the effect is simply magical, the work of a virtuoso. The journey inside the author’s own mind is every bit as captivating as the trip itself. I’d follow her anywhere.”
–Robert Kolker, New York Times bestselling author of Hidden Valley Road

“Morris is frank, funny, and incisive as she revisits her ‘free ranging’ Chicago childhood, single motherhood, and her start as writer, and expounds on tigers in the world and in the imagination . . . Morris’ epigrammatic memoir is a finely wrought mosaic of unexpected and provocative pieces cunningly fit together.”
–Booklist

“Engrossing . . . Morris’s descriptions of remote beauty, grinding urban poverty, and exotic adventures will captivate armchair tourists and travel memoir fans.”
–Publishers Weekly

“In short meditative chapters that go back and forth in time, Morris documents her own evolution, as a traveler and a writer, always returning to the tiger, in history, as image, as symbol, as uber-predator whose numbers are dwindling, and finally as that breathing furnace of power and beauty that stalks our dreams, rousing from deepest slumber the little that’s left of the wild in our hearts.”   
–Valerie Martin, author of Ghost of the Mary Celeste and Property

“I have long been a fan of Mary Morris,  and this wry and luminous new memoir only deepens my admiration for her gifts.”   
–Dan Chaon, author of Ill Will

“A travel memoir is only as good as its journey. In her exquisite new book, All the Way to the Tigers, Mary Morris takes us on not one, but two gripping adventures – a recovery from a horrendous accident, and her subsequent trip to India to look for tigers in the wild. These parallel quests, told in tandem, beautifully illuminate and inform each other. This is a gorgeously written, deeply touching book. It glitters with insight and wisdom. I absolutely loved it.”
–Alex George, author of The Paris Hours
