Descripción de editorial

Steven Kotler was forty years old, single, and facing an existential

crisis when he met Lila, a woman devoted to animal rescue. "Love me,

love my dogs" was her rule, and Steven took it to heart. Spurred to move

by a housing crisis in Los Angeles, Steven, Lila, and their eight

dogs-then ten, then twenty, and then they lost count-bought a

postage-stamp-size farm in Chimayo, New Mexico. A Small Furry Prayer chronicles their adventures at Rancho de Chihuahua, the sanctuary they created for their special needs pack.

While

dog rescue is one of the largest underground movements in America, it

is also one of the least understood. An insider look at the "cult and

culture" of dog rescue, A Small Furry Prayer weaves personal

experience, cultural investigation, and scientific inquiry into a

fast-paced, fun-filled narrative that explores what it means to devote

one's life to the furry and the four-legged. Along the way, Kotler combs

through every aspect of canine-human relations, from humans' long

history with dogs through brand-new research into the neuroscience of

canine companionship, in the end discovering why living in a world made

of dog may be the best way to uncover the truth about what it really

means to be human.
