The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood by Sy Montgomery
Reviewed by Marjorie Kehe

"I once watched a segment about pigs on Animal Planet. It featured a farmer who kept one as a pet. I didn't see more than a few moments, but it was easily enough to grasp that pigs are intelligent, affectionate creatures. The pig in question writhed in joy at the approach of her beloved guardian. Despite her enormous girth and total absence of glossy black fur, she reminded me remarkably of my dog. I've hardly ever been able to eat pork since. So I'll issue a warning right up front about The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood. If you're comfortably carnivorous and want to remain so, don't pick up this book."
