When cow Betsy meets her fate at the slaughterhouse, her son lives on—at least until he ends up dinner at a posh country club.
The book has the appearance of a children’s book, told in rhyme and complete with illustrations by artist Cassie Hart. But parents should not be fooled—the book deals with some serious issues, including the treatment of cows in the production of milk and veal.
Check out Mike Mannix’s review in Humboldt County’s free alt-weekly, The North Coast Journal of Politics, People & Art.
The book is now available online from Amazon.com.
