Comments from the author about writing: I am a historian, currently working on my fourth book, Carnivore Nation: Meat and the Making of Modern America. I began my career in academia, but decided I wanted to write for a larger audience. My mission is to show the enchantment of history to people who think they hate it. My books have been reviewed by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, San Diego Union-Tribune, and other newspapers.
