Canada Reads: John Vaillant on "The Tiger"

The "true stories" edition of Canada Reads is edging closer...
And today, Laura spoke with John Vaillant, one of the authors of the five non-fiction contenders. His bestseller, "The Tiger" , is being championed by Quebec litigator Anne-France Goldwater. It's the intense tale of a man-eating tiger that terrorizes a remote Russian village. It's also about the team tasked with hunting down the endangered animal in the middle of a frigid Siberian winter. Listen audio (runs 5:55)
