EPUB EBook by Ted Kerasote

Why do people hunt? What possesses humans to kill their fellow creatures?

Bloodties EPUB EBook In Greenland, where Inuit haul harpoons on their dogsleds to hunt seals, Kerasote finds remnants of one of the planet's last hunter- EPUBgatherer peoples; download; they stalk their prey for subsistence, much as their ancestors did, despite their new love affair with VCRs. Then, in Siberia, newly opened to Western sportsmen, Kerasote accompanies trophy seekers, wealthy sportsmen intent on bagging record-sized snow sheep while engaged in questionable hunting practices. Finally, Kerasote recounts his own relationship with elks he shoots in Wyoming, the painful but albeit spiritual transaction that occurs when we consciously acknowledge the lives we take to feed us.

Part outdoors journal, part anthropology, Bloodties is a beautifully written, evocative work of contemporary ecology. Like this book?
