“Nicolette Hahn Niman has combined her past experience as an environmental lawyer with her present work as a rancher to offer a searing, and utterly convincing, indictment of modern meat production. But the book brims with hope, too, and charts a practical (and even beautiful) path out of the jungle." --Michael Pollan, author, Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food

Nicolette Niman PhotoNicolette Hahn Niman is a former attorney, a writer, and a rancher. In addition to working on the ranch, much of her time is spent speaking and writing about the problems resulting from industrialized livestock production, including three essays she has written on the subject for the New York Times and her new book, Righteous Porkchop: Finding a Life and Good Food Beyond Factory Farms. Previously, she was the Senior Attorney for the environmental organization Waterkeeper Alliance where she was in charge of the organization's campaign to reform the concentrated livestock and poultry industry, and, before that, an attorney for National Wildlife Federation. Nicolette served two terms on the city council for the City of Kalamazoo, Michigan (pop. 80,000), during which time she served on sixteen community boards and commissions including the Environmental Concerns Committee. She received her Juris Doctorate, cum laude, from the University of Michigan and her B.A. in Biology and French from Kalamazoo College. She lives in Bolinas, California with her husband, Bill Niman.

Sounds like a great forum for asking lots of questions and/or busting people's chops (ha ha!).
