Description
The author of the 2006 PEN West finalist West of Jesus and host of PsychologyToday.com's blog "The Playing Field," Steven Kotler tells us here how he was 40 years old and facing an existential crisis when he met Joy, a woman devoted to canine rescue, and wholeheartedly adopted her cause. Together with their pack of eight dogs—then 15 dogs, then 25 dogs—Steven and Joy bought a tiny farm in Chimayo, New Mexico, and started the Rancho de Chihuahua, a sanctuary for dogs with special needs. This insider look at the subculture of dog rescue begins with Kotler's personal experience amid an ever-peculiar pack of dogs, and combs through every aspect of canine-human relations.

"Kotler seamlessly blends a history of Chimayo, a well-articulated understanding of how humans and dogs coevolved, and background on animal welfare efforts in this country with his witty, sharp-edged, and rewarding reflections on life. Kotler defiantly proclaims his love of Chihuahuas (he's hilarious), then shatters our hearts and ends by laying down a real ethical challenge. Highly recommended not only for dog lovers but for readers of memoir, biology, and anthropology and seekers generally."—Library Journal (starred review)
