"Hold that Tiger"

Hello Ms. Barber:
I appreciated reading your posting about your Aunt, Mabel Stark.
I, too, just read the book by Robert Hough, and I though I am dismayed to learn that it's mostly fiction, I would love to find a book about the "real" Mabel & her amazing career, training circus tigers!In that era, I would imagine that she had many obstacles to overcome - she was undoubtably a very brave & strong woman!

Just a thought - It sounds as though Mr. Hough's book has sparked alot of interest; is there any possibility of a reprint of Mabel & Gertrude's book, "Hold that Tiger"? Reading about her life in her own words would eliminate the speculation brought about by Robert Hough's book.

Wishing you & yours the best... Joy
