After working undercover at a slaughterhouse for an exposÚ on meat processing, Susan Bourette resolved to go completely vegetarian. She lasted approximately five weeks. Dissatisfied with tofu and lentils, Susan began her quest for the perfect meat- one she could enjoy without guilt.

With a reporter's eye and a carnivore's appetite, Bourette takes readers behind the bucolic fašade of the famous Blue Hill farm; on a long, hot Texas cattle drive, a whale hunt with the Inupiat and a Canadian moose hunt; and behind the counter in a Greenwich Village butcher shop. Humorous yet authoritative, Meat celebrates the pleasure of eating meat, as well as the lives of those who hunt, raise, and cook it-and most important, the rewards of being a compassionate carnivore.

"A cross between Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma and Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love."
