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!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
