Overview

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 na-ture. 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. In twenty reflective pieces, half of which have never before been published, Heart of Home solidifies Ted Kera-sote's place among the best of American nature writers.

Editorial Reviews

C. P. Crow
Reflective men and women will be troubled by the kind of question Kerasote raises as long as there are fish to catch and game to kill. For better or worse, the questions themselves have become a part of our outdoor experience. We're fortunate to have a committed outdoorsman like Kerasote to examine them from his firsthand perspective, without an ax to grind, without rancor and with the dignified concern they deserve. -- C.P. Crow, New York Times Book Review
