The book features the most compelling images from the Orvis archives and is inspired by an extended essay by Ken Foster.

Lyons Press is proud to announce the October 2016 release of Dogs Unleashed (978-1-4930-2679-1, cloth, $19.95) with compelling images from the Orvis Company archives and essays by best-selling dog writer Ken Foster. This unique book offers captivating new ways of enjoying nature through the eyes of our most trusted companions-our dogs. As dog “owners,” we spend much of our time learning how we might teach our dogs, but dogs can connect us back to the natural world and to our own intuitive nature of observation and wonder. Even the most adventurous of us is unlikely to explore the world as thoroughly as a dog.

With a foreword by Orvis vice chairman Dave Perkins and his wife Nancy Mackinnon, Dogs Unleashed offers beautiful images from Orvis and an inspired extended essay by bestselling dog author Ken Foster. This book conveys that there is no journey that can be taken alone that is as satisfying as the same path in the company of a dog.

Ken Foster is the editor of two anthologies, including Dog Culture. His collection of short stories, The Kind I'm Likely to Get, was a New York Times Notable Book. His work has appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The San Francisco Chronicle, McSweeney's, and The Believer. He has taught at The New School, Florida State University, and the University of Southern Mississippi.
