Gail Eisnitz has spent her life as an investigative journalist and activist on behalf of sentient animals. In 1997 she wrote a remarkable book titled "Slaughterhouse" that laid bare the cruelty and brutality of the animal agriculture industry. The stories she shares are troubling and haunting...

From Amazon, "Slaughterhouse is the first book of its kind to explore the impact that unprecedented changes in the meatpacking industry over the last twenty-five years - particularly industry consolidation, increased line speeds, and deregulation - have had on workers, animals, and consumers. It is also the first time ever that workers have spoken publicly about what's really taking place behind the closed doors of America's slaughterhouses."
