Bass took the time and spent the money to help his Colter be the best dog I ever had.

Colter: The Best Dog Book I've Ever Read. com User, May 24, 2000. I love this book! I think that anyone who loves dogs as much as I do will appreciate the sentiments of Rick Bass when he describes his beloved hunting dog, Colter. This is a book about bird hunting and the author's partnership with a very special pointing dog. Being a non-hunter detracted not one bit from my appeciation of this exploration of the depths of the human-canine relationship. Although I have never owned a hunting dog, the pure and simple emotion evident in this book is somehow heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

This delightful book is really a love story about the special bond and level of understanding that can exist between a man and his do.

This delightful book is really a love story about the special bond and level of understanding that can exist between a man and his dog.

Colter, a German shorthair pup, was the runt of the litter, and Rick Bass took him only because nobody else would. Distinguished by "crystalline, ottom 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.

Colter: The True Story of the Best Dog I Ever Had. Why I Came West: A Memoir. Nearly every Saturday morning, after I had finished watching the early showing of Bomba the Jungle Boy or Tarzan, my mother would drive me way across town to the Museum of Natural History for the weekly Saturday lecture. The chief reptile guy for the zoo was Dr. John Werler, a kind of local Crocodile Hunter decades before such a niche found fascination with the general public.

The critically acclaimed author of Where the Sea Used to Be shares his memories of his favorite dog, Colter, and the diverse ways in which he transformed the author's life, in a fascinating look at the dynamic relationship between humans and dogs. 25,000 first printing.

Rick Bass is a great American author and in Colter he shares his love of the West and of his beautiful dog, Colter. If you love your dog, you’ll love Colter.

I read this in a day. Was swept up in Bass' descriptions of the bird hunt country and the evocative descriptions of the man/dog relationship in the process. I am not a fan of hunting-of any sort-but the descriptions of the genius of Colter (along with the goofiness) gave me a taste of the pull of the hunt. But it's the man/dog relationship that Bass describes so well.

Let me start by saying I abhor hunting. Truly. I was almost put of by Mr. Bass's prologue because I don't want to read about "glee killings." This book has changed my mind. Mr. Bass has such a balanced approach to hunting, and to live, that I was intrigued. The writing is beautiful. He could almost - but not quite - pen menus and have me hooked. I am looking to read something else, anything else, by this author.

I have read all of Rick Bass's books, and they never disappoint me. His words paint images in my mind and emotions in my heart. Being in a home that has also been home to many dogs only made this story all the better! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves superb writing, hunting stories, and dog stories!

I bought this as a gift for my boss who is a Montana native and avid bird hunter with his german shorthairs. He rarely sits long enough to read, but told me that once he started reading this book he couldn't put it down. He said it really made brought back some fond memories of the hunting dogs he's has in his life and enjoyed that much of the book took place in country he was quite familiar with. A good read for any outdoorsman especially if you love Montana.

Although I am not a hunter, the writing was so captivation, I almost felt like one...almost. Made me want to get a dog agin.
This is a wonderful story about the dog/human bond. More than that it shows our bond with nature and the joy we experience from it. The authors writing style is so expressive you can feel the emotion and be there with them. This book expresses what hunting is to a majority of people. It's more about being in one with nature and each other than the target.
