Sinopsis:

Looks at the subsistence hunting of Inuit in Greenland, Western sportsmen trophy hunting in Siberia, and the author's own hunting of elk in Wyoming, and discusses the ethical issues of hunting

Review:

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.
