"A sweeping history of pigs in the United States from before the arrival of Europeans to today. In Anderson's clear, brisk, and clever history, these animals appear as wild beasts roaming forests, domesticates in farm pens, commodities in railcars, corpses on slaughterhouse hooks, meat at the ends of butchers' knives, consumer products in Walmart coolers, nourishment in human stomachs, and as transplanted hearts thumping away in human chests. It's fun to read."
James C. Giesen, author of Boll Weevil Blues: Cotton, Myth, and Power in the American South
