A beautiful and clear-eyed examination of the world of pigs and pig farming. With his engaging prose and soulful, riveting stories, [Estabrook] illuminates the complexities of the pig industry and the desperate need for reform.--Alice Waters, Chez Panisse
Cogent, level-headed.
Estabrook, a reporter of iron constitution and persistence, has dug deep into the truth about the American pork industry without losing his sense of humor and humanity. Gruesome on one hand; funny on the other.--Christopher Kimball
Estabrook turns his keen journalistic eye to pig production . . . [and] provides balance in the engaging tales of farmers and processors who are thoughtful and eminently human. . . . [A] must-read.--Cathy Barrow, author of Mrs. Wheelbarrow's Kitchen
Estabrook demonstrates his skill with words to tell compelling true stories...authoritative yet approachable.--Steve Weinberg
Masterfully blends storytelling with succinct explanations of policy and science...a must-read.--Jim Romanoff
