Counter 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.
