Join Boswell Book Co. and WHS for a special reading and book signing by renowned author Ted Kerasote. Kerasote will be reading from his new book, PUKKA'S PROMISE: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs.
In PUKKA’S PROMISE: The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, February 2013), Kerasote sets out to answer that question, combining five years of international research and interviews with breeders, veterinarians, and leaders of the animal-welfare movement to help dog owners rethink the everyday choices they make for their pets. Kerasote explains in detail how our own lifestyles intimately affect the longevity of our dogs.
Kerasote does for dogs what Schlosser did for unhealthy eating, what Sheff does for addiction—objectively investigate all angles of an issue that affects millions of people worldwide. And Kerasote’s meticulous advice isn’t just for dog lovers—any household will benefit from the healthy lifestyle improvements he suggests in the book. PUKKA’S PROMISE is the perfect read to start the New Year, enriching the lives of our cherished companions, our families, and ourselves.
TED KERASOTE’S books include the national bestseller Merle’s Door: Lessons from a Freethinking Dog and Out There, which won the National Outdoor Book Award. His essays and photographs have appeared in Audubon, Outside, and the New York Times, among others.
