PLANET CHICKEN is an eye-opening book about the bird we eat and mistreat the most. Hattie Ellis traces the chicken's evolution and history in farming, and reveals the grotesque scandal of the modern chicken industry, and its effect on our health. But she also talks to chicken lovers around the world, from West Indian jerk-chicken stall holders to Provenal chefs, and to the pioneers who are bringing real chickens back to our tables. This will be a shocking and informative read, but also an inspiring one.
