"This groundbreaking book has enormous potential to create a dialogue with differing groups."
—New Mexico Wildlife
"As a long-time vegetarian . . . I was more than a little wary. . . Fortunately, this book retires exhausted tropes and instead presents a truly original and touching account of connecting with nature.”
"A gripping look at some of the central questions, both practical and philosophical, of human existence."
“One of the most unusual and intriguing books I’ve ever read. . . . Thought-provoking, educational, subtle, and agenda-free.”
"A touching and thought-provoking exploration of not only what we eat but how we eat it."
"A remarkably candid, nuanced, and engaging meditation on what it means to be human. There are no prescriptions or preachy admonitions—just an honest account of the mindful unfolding of a person who has taken seriously the responsibility of being dependent upon the death of other organisms in order to live. The Mindful Carnivore is a bracing read."
—Jan E. Dizard, author of Mortal Stakes and Going Wild
"An unflinching account of one omnivore’s dilemma, drawn with psychological sensitivity and ecological sense. Cerulli treats compelling arguments on both the pro- and anti-hunting sides of the environmental divide with equanimity, while being just as equally impatient with both sides’ time-worn clichés and sound-bite slogans. A nourishing read!”
—Mary Zeiss Stange, author of Woman the Hunter and Hard Grass
