Hi all,

I've just submitted for proofing "The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and
Sustainability" by Lierre Keith.

It's been read through w/errors corrected, headers stripped, section
titles/page numbers present, body text/section headings formatted, footnotes
formatted. 312 pages.
Suggest removing "adult" designation. 

Part memoir, nutritional primer, and political manifesto, this controversial
examination exposes the destructive history of agriculture-causing the
devastation of prairies and forests, driving countless species extinct,
altering the climate, and destroying the topsoil-and asserts that, in order
to save the planet, food must come from within living communities.  In order
for this to happen, the argument champions eating locally and sustainably
and encourages those with the resources to grow their own food.  Further
examining the question of what to eat from the perspective of both human and
environmental health, the account goes beyond health choices and discusses
potential moral issues from eating-or not eating-animals.  Through the
deeply personal narrative of someone who practiced veganism for 20 years,
this unique exploration also discusses alternatives to industrial farming,
reveals the risks of a vegan diet, and explains why animals belong on
ecologically sound farms.
