Traer Scott - City of Dogs & Radiant (Corte Madera Store)

Co-Sponsored by the Milo Foundation

New York is a city of five boroughs, more than 250 distinct neighborhoods, 8.5 million people, and more than 600,000 dogs, who are as much a part of the social fabric as the people who follow them on the other end of the leash. City of Dogs maps this relationship with incredible four-color photos highlighting the scene. From the Bronx to Brooklyn and along the streets of Harlem and Manhattan, Ken Foster and Traer Scott explore the unique relationships between dogs and their human counterparts. We meet Alex Nuckel, living on disability and finding joy and purpose in caring for his two pit bulls, Lucy and Rocky. And Majora Carter, a community activist who has received a MacArthur grant, living and working with two stray shepherds she rescued in her own neighborhood. City of Dogs also takes us to a Midtown Manhattan law office, where staff are encouraged to bring their adopted dogs to work, and to the JFK airport, where we meet dogs who help screen at security. And then on to Brooklyn, where we meet award-winning author Jacqueline Woodson and her dogs, Toffee and Shadow. These are just a few of the amazing animals and their people featured in this perfect gift book for any dog lover.

Radiant: Farm Animals Up Close and Personal contains beautiful portraits of farm animals that bring to life their sparkling personalities and stories. The photographs range from cows, pigs, sheep, and chickens to Dolly the wooly llama, Bianca the Sicilian miniature donkey, Percy the Indian peafowl, and Justice the yak. Some of the animals are pets; others live happily on farms and sanctuaries. Scott shares her anecdotes about a Texas longhorn steer whose best friends are a trio of goats, a turkey who likes to snack on grapes and watermelon, and many others. In addition to photos and heartwarming stories, Radiant contains informative facts as well--did you know donkeys' stubbornness is a well-honed survival tactic? That Scottish Highland cattle are the oldest registered breed of cattle in the world? Scott's captions combine detailed histories of the breeds with the personal sagas to create enchanting tributes to our four-legged (and winged) friends from the farm.

Traer Scott is a photographer and the author of eight books, including Finding Home: Shelter Dogs and their Stories and Raptors: Portraits of Birds of Prey. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, with her husband, daughter, and creatures.
