About The Author:
Ted Kerasote is the author of many books, including the national bestseller Merle’s Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog and Out There: In The Wild in a Wired Age, which won the National Outdoor Book Award. Ted began writing professionally as a teenager, his first nationally published story—about surf fishing for striped bass—bought by Outdoor Life when he was seventeen. Since then, Ted’s writing has often focused on the interrelationship between people, animals, and the natural environment, and during his four-decades-long career, his essays and photographs have appeared in magazines as wide-ranging in their subject matter as. His book Bloodties: Nature, Culture, and The Hunt is considered by many authorities to be the best and most evenhanded work on how both aboriginal and modern people treat wildlife. In addition, Bloodties offered the first comprehensive analysis of the fossil-fuel costs of our diets, and it continues to be a primary text in many university bioethics courses.
