Lily Raff McCaulou had been raised as a gun-fearing environmentalist and an animal lover and, though a meat eater, had always abided by the principle that harming animals is wrong. But when she left New York for a reporting job in central Oregon, her perspective shifted. She began spending time fly-fishing and interviewing hunters for her articles, realizing that many of them were more thoughtful about animals and the environment than she was. Lily Raff McCaulou’s Call of the Mild is a beautifully written and contrarian narrative that explores the tension between hunters and environmentalists and the new models of sustainable and ethical food procurement.
