Harry R. Caldwell was a Methodist missionary to southern China. In Blue Tiger, first published in 1924, he wrote about several of his adventures in that country. An avid hunter and amateur naturalist, he noted the challenges of hunting big-game like serow, big-horn, wapiti, boar, and tiger. He described how hunting man-killing tigers paved the way for effective mission work, and spent several chapters discussing the political landmines of trying to affect peace between soldiers and bandits in an effort to spare villagers caught between the fighting. Of particular interest, Caldwell described a fascinating creature, a blue-morph tiger, that he attempted to capture for science. This non-facsimile reprint includes an additional appendix has been added, in which Roy Chapman Andrews described the hunt for the blue tiger.Caldwell, Harry R. is the author of 'Blue Tiger', published 2007 under ISBN 9781930585386 and ISBN 1930585381.
