The last 20 years have brought many changes in American culture, among them a widespread belief that animals should be granted moral rights: protection from cruelty, from laboratory testing, from the destruction of their habitats. Some advocates argue that protection from hunting should be added to the list. Ted Kerasote provides a lively rebuttal in the pages of Bloodties, a book that takes us into the homes of hunting cultures in Greenland as well as into the mausoleum-like palaces of wealthy trophy hunters in America. Killing for food, Kerasote argues, constitutes an honorable activity, while collecting heads to mount on a living-room wall is indefensible. People on either side of the hunting debate will find much to think about in this well-written book.From the Publisher:
An ardent environmentalist and hunter seeks our proper relationship to the animal world.
