COLTER pairs one of America's most treasured writers with our most treasured "best friend." Colter, a German shorthair pup, was the runt of the litter, and Rick Bass took him only because nobody else would. Soon, though, Colter surprised his new owner, first with his raging genius, then with his innocent ability to lead Bass to new territory altogether, a place where he felt instantly more alive and more connected to the world. Distinguished by "crystalline, see-through-to-the-bottom prose" (Rocky Mountain News), this interspecies love story vividly captures the essence of canine companionship, and yet, as we've come to expect from Rick Bass, it does far more. "With an elegant, often erudite flavor to this story" (Book Page), COLTER illuminates the heart of life by recreating the sheer, unmitigated pleasure of an afternoon in the Montana hills with a loyal pup bounding at your side.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Long before I became fully hostage to a life of reading, I was attracted to books like Fred Gibson's Old Yeller and Savage Sam and Sterling North's Rascal and The Wolfing, books that bore witness to (and gloriÞed) the depths and breadth that the man-animal bond could reach. I had already felt the unmistakable and again comforting presence of grace when in the company of animals, especially wild animals: the stirrings of what Edward O. Wilson has labeled "biophilia" - our attachment to all living things.

- From Colter
