Pukka's promise : the quest for longer-lived dogs by Ted Kerasote( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Ted Kerasote was ready for a new dog after losing his beloved Merle--who died, as all our dogs do, too soon--he knew that he would want to give his puppy the longest life possible. But how? Combining cutting-edge research with an adventurous narrative, Kerasote offers answers that will surprise you. He provides vital new information on whether a purebred can be as healthy as a mixed-breed, whether you should say no to yearly vaccines and spaying or neutering, and how to pick the best food from the crowded shelves. Traveling the dog world in Europe and North America and interviewing breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement, Kerasote helps us rethink the everyday choices we make for our companions, interweaving fascinating science with the charming stories of raising Pukka among his many dog friends in their small Wyoming village.--From publisher description

Merle's door : lessons from a freethinking dog by Ted Kerasote( Book )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While on a camping trip, Ted Kerasote met a dog--a Labrador mix--who was living on his own in the wild. They became attached to each other, and Kerasote decided to name the dog Merle and bring him home. There, he realized that Merle's native intelligence would be diminished by living exclusively in the human world. He put a dog door in his house so Merle could live both outside and in. This portrait of a remarkable dog and his relationship with the author explores the issues that animals and their human companions face as their lives intertwine, bringing to bear the latest research into animal consciousness and behavior as well as insights into the origins and evolution of the human-dog partnership. Merle showed Kerasote how dogs might live if they were allowed to make more of their own decisions, and Kerasote suggests how these lessons can be applied universally.--From publisher description
Merle's door : lessons from a freethinking dog by Ted Kerasote( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ted Kerasote met and adopted Merle, a Laborador mix, while he was on a camping trip. Merle had been living in the wild, and after taking the dog home with him to Wyoming, Kerasote soon realized that Merle could not adjust to inhabiting exclusively in the human world. So he put a door in his house to let Merle live both outside and in. A deeply touching portrait of a remarkable animal, Merle's Door explores the issues that all animals and their human companions face as their lives intertwine, and presents the latest research into animal behavior as well as the origins and evolution of human-dog interaction. Merle showed Kerasote how dogs might live were they free; Kerasote suggests how they should be allowed to live, and the doors that should always remain open to them
A road runs through it : reviving wild places( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores what many consider to be the most important issue in the re-wilding of America today-roads. Not highways, but the 500,000 miles of roads built on federal forest lands to access natural resources and then abandoned when the resources were removed." "A Road Runs Through It features a collection of essays by some of today's finest nonfiction writers: Peter Matthiessen, Barry Lopez, Janisse Ray, David Quammen, David Petersen, Stephanie Mills, William Kittredge, and two dozen others. Together, they cover all aspects of roads and their impact on the wilderness." "As all royalties from this book are being donated to Wildlands CPR, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and reviving wild places by promoting road removal and re-vegetation, this book not only educates and informs on the issues of roads-it becomes part of the solution. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Bloodties : nature, culture, and the hunt by Ted Kerasote( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do people hunt? What possesses humans to kill their fellow creatures? In Bloodties, naturalist Ted Kerasote explores such provocative questions, taking readers on adventurous journeys to the ends of the earth while dramatizing the debate over our proper relationship to the animal kingdom. In Greenland, where Inuit haul harpoons on their dogsleds to hunt seals, Kerasote finds remnants of one of the planet's last hunter-gatherer peoples; they stalk their prey for subsistence, much as their ancestors did, despite their new love affair with VCRs. Then, in Siberia, newly opened to Western sportsmen, Kerasote accompanies trophy seekers, wealthy sportsmen intent on bagging record-sized snow sheep while engaged in questionable hunting practices. Finally, Kerasote recounts his own relationship with elks he shoots in Wyoming, the painful but albeit spiritual transaction that occurs when we consciously acknowledge the lives we take to feed us. These ethical paradoxes and moral dilemmas make Bloodties a critical book for anyone grappling with the humans' role on Earth. Part outdoors journal, part anthropology, Bloodties is a beautifully written, evocative work of contemporary ecology
Heart of home : people, wildlife, place by Ted Kerasote( Book )

2 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is home a place, a state of mind, or a way of participating in the natural world? In Heart of Home, Ted Kerasote makes the case for all three. These thoughtful, provocative essays and stories showcase Kerasote at his best, probing the evolving relationship between humans and nature. Whether fly-fishing for trout, frolicking with coyotes, gauging the costs of logging, agriculture, and hunting, or fantasy-camping with the fathers of conservation, John Muir and Theodore Roosevelt, Kerasote eloquently illuminates an engrossing central theme: how we stay connected to the Earth's cycles of life and death through mindful participation. Kerasote discards the easy labels of hunters versus vegetarians, loggers versus environmentalists, and zeroes in on the interconnectedness of all human beings and their home, the Earth
