Through essays, poems, and art, What if the Shoe Were on the Other Hoof? allows us the chance to reverse our perspective; to see what animal agriculture might look like through the eyes of the animals. It asks us to consider the impact of our choices on other humans, the environment, and the animals with whom we share this world.
With both earnest contemplation and biting satire, this book acknowledges the power of the choices resting in our hands and asks that we make these choices with awareness and compassion.
