Mad Cowboy is mandatory reading. I know that sounds like homework, but I promise you that it’s not.

I picked up Mad Cowboy on a whim before a vacation that I took with my parents to the beautiful state of Arizona. It wasn’t very typical of me to grab a more “serious” book for a vacation, but the tagline “Plain truth from the cattle rancher who won’t eat meat” blew my mind.

From the first chapter, I was hooked. The author, Howard Lyman, was realistic and practical about his approach to eating meat. No scare tactics were involved, just the truth from his perspective.

What made the book so interesting was that it showed that people can change, no matter what the circumstance. This guy, a cattle farmer, went vegetarian because of the horrors he saw on his farm and the impact that his farm had on the environment as a whole. I won’t spoil the rest of it, but no matter what circumstance you are in, things can change.

Happy reading, everyone!
