The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance (Paperback)
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.
