My book about the Bill and Lou affair at Green
Mountain College, a topic covered in great depth here at Eating Plants, is
now available as an e-book. The title is The Politics of the Pasture: How
Two Oxen Inspired a National Debate about Eating Animals. At the moment it
can be purchased on
Amazon, but over the next few days will also become available at iTunes,
Kobo, Barnes & Noble, and ebooks.com. And, of course, you can always
purchase it at
Books, who did a brilliant job with the project.
I hope you will
help me and Lantern Books spread the word. This book covers what I think was
a critical moment in animal rights history--the moment when a national
discussion finally arose over the troubled intersection of environmental and
animal rights ideologies.
I worked every day for many hours on this
book for three months without interruption. In some ways, that's way too
fast. But the upshot is an analysis that comes while the embers of this
event are still glowing. My passion for these animals remains similarly
In many ways, this is your book. Readers were relentless in
their support of my endeavor. I never could have written the book without
the constant stream of contacts, news items, tips, and analytical
suggestions. As I write this post, I'm overcome with gratitude and inspired
by your dedication to the cause of animals. Thank you so much.
