Pig Tales: An Omnivore's Quest for Sustainable Meat

Pig Tales: An Omnivore's Quest for Sustainable Meat

An eye-opening investigation of the commercial pork industry and an inspiring alternative to the way pigs are raised and consumed in America.Barry Estabrook, author of the New York Times bestseller Tomatoland and a writer of “great skill and compassion” (Eric Schlosser), now explores the dark side of the American pork industry. Drawing on his personal experiences raising pigs as well as his sharp investigative instincts, Estabrook covers the range of the human-porcine experience. He embarks on nocturnal feral pig hunts in Texas. He visits farmers who raise animals in vast confinement barns for Smithfield and Tyson, two of the country’s biggest pork producers. And he describes the threat of infectious disease and the possible contamination of our food supply. Through these stories shines Estabrook’s abiding love for these remarkable creatures. Pigs are social, self-aware, and playful, not to mention smart enough to master the typical house dog commands of “sit, stay, come” twice as fast as your average pooch. With the cognitive abilities of at least three-year-olds, they can even learn to operate a modified computer. Unfortunately for the pigs, they’re also delicious to eat.Estabrook shows how these creatures are all too often subjected to lives of suffering in confi...

Pig Tales a narc's story

Pig Tales a narc's story

Pig Tales follows a young man's career from his stint as a Berkeley police officer in the 70s to his time as an undercover narcotic detective in a rural county in California's Central Valley. It examines the war on drugs from a different point of view and explores the personal lives of narcs as well as how cases are really made. The wild adventures of this undercover cop are relayed in humorous, and sometimes moving, stories that bring the cops, crooks, and informants to life during a time when police work was far less regulated. The characters involved on both sides of the law were colorful and sometimes outrageous. While Pig Tales recounts terrifying moments on the job, its style offers an entertaining and irreverent snapshot of what really goes on and isn't often talked about in law enforcement. Readers will come face to face with these rich characters and the life and politics of the law enforcement profession in a way that is seldom done.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

When it comes time for the three little wolves to go out into the world and build themselves a house, their mother warns them to beware the big bad pig. But the little wolves' increasingly sturdy dwellings are no match for the persistent porker, who has more up his sleeve than huffing and puffing. It takes a chance encounter with a flamingo pushing a wheelbarrow full of flowers to provide a surprising and satisfying solution to the little wolves' housing crisis. Eugene Trivizas's hilarious text and Helen Oxenbury's enchanting watercolors have made this delightfully skewed version of the traditional tale a contemporary classic.
