Catherine Friend tackles the carnivore's dilemma, exploring the contradictions, nuances, questions, and bewildering choices facing today's more conscious meat-eaters.The Compassionate Carnivoreis "perfect for people who would like to eat meat but have moral, ethical, or health concerns about doing so" (Marion Nestle,What to Eat). Based on her own personal struggle, Friend's original, witty take on the meat and livestock debates shows consumers how they can be healthy and humane carnivores, too.
