520    Investigating hog manure pollution was hardly the 
       glamorous assignment Nicolette Hahn Niman pictured when 
       going to work for Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in New York. But 
       her odyssey into the inner workings of the "factory farm" 
       industry transformed her into an intrepid environmental 
       lawyer who goes up against the big-business farming 
       establishment. Niman uncovers shocking practices, 
       including inhumane animal confinement and devastating 
       water and air pollution. She organizes a national reform 
       movement to fight these practices and shows that livestock
       farming can be done in a better way--not only for hogs, 
       but also for poultry, fish, and dairy cows. She also tours
       the best of farms, where traditional farmers and ranchers 
       treat their animals humanely and have joined with other 
       farmers to successfully market the foods they produce. She
       profiles the innovative and cost-effective methods these 
       operations have incorporated to make a profit by ethical, 
       sustainable means.
