Robert Newton Peck's most touching and famous book is a story so filled with light that once you hear it, you'll never forget it. It is the true story of a young boy growing up on a Vermont farm with the warmth of his Shaker faith and father's love. He must learn from his father, who slaughters pigs for a living, about "doing what's got to be done" when his own pig cannot produce a litter. A Day No Pigs Would Die deals with the cycles of nature, birth, and death with straightforward honesty and heartbreaking poignancy.
