The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance
After a childhood spent fishing for trout, Tovar Cerulli began to experiment with
vegetarianism in his teens. By the age of twenty, he was a vegan. A decade later, in
the face of declining health, he returned to omnivory and within a few years found
himself heading into the woods, rifle in hand.
Through his personal quest, Cerulli bridges the seemingly disparate worldviews of
hunting and vegetarianism: can fishing and hunting be respectful ways for humans
to connect with nature and their food? How harmless is vegetarianism? How do
we make peace with the fact that life is sustained by death? At once compassionate
and probing, The Mindful Carnivore offers fresh, thought-provoking ideas about the
food on our plates.

About the Author
Bull's-eye! Cerulli cuts through forests of argument with a thoughtful and thrilling narrative. We experience his growing awareness of what it means to be fully involved in the web of nature. With him we can wonder at its complex mystery and share in 'mindful eating' as a sacred act.--Betty Fussell, author of The Story of Corn and Raising Steaks
