Meat: A Love Story

By: Susan Bourette













Susan Bourette’s journey to discover meat that she could feel good about eating began after she spend four days as an undercover journal at a meat packing plant.  Resolving to become a vagitatian, Bourette only lasted about six weeks.   She then resolved to find meat she felt good about eating. This quest to discover meat that is socially conscious comprises much of this novel, and this journey takes Bourdette to many places, including Alaska and the cattle ranches of the west.  However, Bourette also covers the broader subject of meat, including the history of American beef and its subcultures and controversies.  Through her investigations, Susan learned to have a greater appreciation for meat, and learned how it can enrich a diet when the animals are treated well, given the proper diet, and not artificially enhanced.  No matter how a reader feels about the process of using animals for meat, this book will instill in them a better understanding for this food group.
