The bestselling author of Merle’s Door offers a “moving, pictorial love story” of man and his new best friend—full of dog care knowledge and insight (People). After Ted Kerasote’s beloved dog Merle passed, the author received thousands of emails asking two questions: “Have you gotten another dog?” and “Are you writing a new book?” Now, the bestselling canine lover answers both, in the most heartwarming way. Told in Pukka the pup’s charming voice and accompanied by more than 200 photos, Pukka: The Pup After Merle tells the story of how Ted found Pukka.

Merle's Door

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. A deeply touching portrait of a remarkable dog and his relationship with the author, Merle’s Door explores the issues that all 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.

As individuals and as a nation we believe that if we recycle and buy fuel-efficient cars we have done our part to protect the environment. Yet an important element is missing. If we don't conserve the still-undeveloped places of the earth, human life will be disconnected from its fellow animals and torn from its roots. Humans will still exist, but as Ted Kerasote explains in his insightful introduction, "we'll be like potted trees in the foyers of great skyscrapers -- alone and not part of a wider forest."Our efforts to recycle and conserve energy must be augmented with advocacy for the protection of wild spaces, and Return of the Wild is an important underpinning for that endeavor: a guide ...

AN ARDENT ENVIRONMENTALIST AND HUNTER SEEKS OUR PROPER RELATIONSHIP TO THE ANIMAL WORLD For all readers who are perplexed over humanity's proper relationship to animals, Ted Kerasote's provocative exploration of the ancient human urge to hunt will dramatize the issues that fuel this controversial debate. In his opening section, "Food" the author travels to the frozen shores of coastal Greenland, living and hunting with Inuit villagers-true hunter-gatherers-who are utterly dependent for sustenance on the seals, polar bears, and narwhal that they can wrest from their punishing environment. In "Trophies," Kerasote accompanies the first Western sportsmen permitted into a remote stretch of Siberi...

Mais do que um relato emocionante sobre a amizade entre um homem e seu cão, livro autobiográfico do jornalista Ted Kerasote inova ao revelar a origem e a evolução da relação homem-cachorro. Pesquisando experiências, observações e teorias científicas, postas à prova no dia-a-dia com o companheiro canino, o autor chegou a questionamentos profundos sobre a relação entre cães e seres humanos. A porta a que o subtítulo se refere foi construída pelo autor para que o cachorro, independente, pudesse entrar e sair de casa nas longas ausências do dono. Kerasote, por outro lado, recebeu em troca a abertura de uma outra porta: a do coração. Honesto, divertido, emocionante e repleto de informações surpreendentes, "Lições de um Cachorro Livre-pensante - A Porta de Merle" foi lançado em oito países além dos Estados Unidos, onde teve 300 mil exemplares vendidos e permaneceu por dez semanas na lista de mais vendidos do New York Times.

Merle e Ted Kerasote si sono incontrati nel deserto dello Utah. Merle aveva circa dieci mesi, era stato abbandonato e aveva l’aria di cercare qualcuno che lo adottasse. Ted aveva quarant’anni, scriveva articoli e saggi sugli animali ed era alla ricerca di un compagno a quattro zampe. Merle si è subito trasferito nella casa di Ted nel Wyoming, una zona prevalentemente rurale, e Ted ha fatto installare una porta che permettesse a Merle di andare e tornare a suo piacere, completamente libero. In questo modo, fra i due si è instaurato un rapporto unico che ha insegnato molto a entrambi, ma soprattutto a Ted: gli ha insegnato che non si tratta solo di lasciare porte aperte sul mondo esterno...
