Bovine Boddhisatva is the story of Emily the cow that escaped from the slaughterhouse in 1995. A heartwarming story of a family of vegetarians who during the Christmas Holiday dropped everything and went in search for an extraordinarily intelligent, cunning and brave bovine.

This compilation of over 80 independently written articles about a wayward cow by journalist from around the country (Boston Globe, People Magazine, Metro-West Daily News, AP) tells a story unlike any other. Emily the cow did what no other cow has -- escaped the killing floor of a slaughterhouse to become a sacred cow for a school of special needs children and a community of nonvegetarians.

The perfect read for any who considers themselves animal lovers and the ideal present for your vegetarian friend.

Good book, but reading about some of the stuff the author commonly does before diving makes me amazed that it wasn't published posthumously. Think drinking and smoking dope before diving. Not recommended in most guidebooks. Read full review
