Could you spend a year eating only animals that you had killed yourself? This was the brave project undertaken by Louise Gray and detailed in her fascinating new book The Ethical Carnivore.
Told in beautiful, descriptive prose that shows her love and knowledge of nature, we are taken on a journey as Gray grows from a shaky novice taking a bad shot at a wild rabbit, to proudly feeding her friends animals she has hunted or foraged.
She even ventures into eating roadkill, as well as serving up satay squirrel.
This is a must-read for anyone who wants to know more about where the meat and fish they eat comes from, exploring in depth how the animals live and how they die, and the environmental and social impact along the way.
