It is excellent. I've read most of his books and like them all.
Heart of Home is a wonderfull collection of essays by a man who appreciates the natural world and writes about it beautifully. Kerasote writes from personal experiences in a very intimate manner. He is a believable and knowledgable author, resulting in an easy to read collection of pleasant essays. Also in this collection are some essays about vegetarianism and veganism that are quite refreshing and unique. Fans of Doug Peacock, Barry Lopez, or even Thoreau will enjoy Kerasote's work. I can't see someone being dissappointed with Heart of Home.
From my own embattled childhood, I came to believe that happy people were, by definition, shallow. Fortunately, I eventually met someone who wasn't, who opened my eyes to the possibility of deep joy in mindful participation in life, in love of the messy old world, without denying or diminishing the unavoidable pain. Ted Kerasote's work is steeped in this experience, and Heart of Home is one beautiful expression of it. Never a partisan of causes like animal rights, still his compassion for even the smallest, most easily overlooked lives -- rodents nesting among the roots of a tree being cut down to build a house, earthworms killed when planting a garden -- inspires him to think hard about how he might avoid or minimise harming them, to incorporate these thoughts in his actions, to feel sorrow for what can't be avoided whatever one chooses, and yet to joyously build his house and grow his vegetables in a spirit of gratitude. This book is a rigorous yet gentle response to hard-liners...
