Ted Kerasote - "Pukka's Promise" CANCELLED

Category: Authors
Location: Adrian Lamb Room

 THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO ILLNESS. Author, photographer and avid outdoorsman Ted Kerasote will visit the Library on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 to introduce his latest book Pukka’s Promise: The Quest for Longer Lived Dogs. The event is co-sponsored by Elm Street Books and will take place in the Adrian Lamb Room at 7:00 p.m.

Ted Kerasote writes frequently on the relationship between people and nature and specifically, in his books, about the special bond between people and their dogs. When his beloved dog Merle passed away, Kerasote decided he would do all he could to give his new puppy Pukka the longest life possible. Much has changed in the way of research relating to optimum care for our pets.  Kerasote set out to sort through the abundance of opinions, questioning conventional wisdom and taking a hard look at the newest information. Is a raw diet really a better alternative than kibble? Which vaccines are essential and how many is too many? Can pure breeds be as healthy as mixed-breeds? Through interviews with veterinarians, breeders and animal-welfare proponents across the globe, Kerasote offers a unique and thorough consideration of the care we give our canine companions.



Ted Kerasote is the author of many books, including the national best seller, 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. His essays and photographs have appeared in Audubon, Geo, Outside, Science, The New York Times, and more than sixty other periodicals. Focusing on the interrelationship between people and nature, Kerasote’s writing takes him from the Arctic to Africa and many places in between, but he makes his home in Northern Wyoming.
