Description
A naturalist who spent months at a time living among wild creatures in remote jungles, Sy Montgomery gladly opened her heart to a sick piglet who had been crowded away from nourishing meals by his stronger siblings. Yet Sy had no inkling that this pigletólater named Christopher Hogwoodówould not only survive, but flourish, and provide her with an anchor (eventually weighing 750 pounds) to family and home. The Good Good Pig celebrates Christopher Hogwood, from his inauspicious infancy in rural New Hampshire, through his friendships with fellow villagers, to national celebrity on National Public Radio.

"I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up Sy Montgomery's story of Christopher the pig. What I found was a charming, touching, funny, and ultimately very powerful tale of an extraordinary, even complicated, pig and his impact on some very loving, perceptive, and extraordinary people."óJohn Katz

"Move over, Wilbur, there's a new pig on the block. Sy Montgomery has conjured a pure classic for the animal lover's soul. Poetic, insightful, funny, and deeply moving, The Good Good Pig is as hard to define as it is to put down. Who else but Sy Montgomery could introduce you to a hog and give you such a glimpse of heaven?"óVicki Croke
