Wie fühlt es sich an, eine Kuh zu sein? Ziemlich ähnlich wie ein Mensch. Davon ist Rosamund Young, britische Ökobäuerin der ersten Stunde, überzeugt: Kühe haben Gefühle und gehen persönliche Beziehungen ein. Sie sprechen miteinander, geben ihre Weisheit weiter, kümmern sich um den Nachwuchs, spielen Verstecken, sind beleidigt, verärgert, traurig oder aufgekratzt. Young, die auf ihrer Farm Kite‘s Nest in den Cotswolds im Herzen Englands seit vielen Jahren biologische Landwirtschaft betreibt, hat zu ihren Kühen ein ganz besonderes Verhältnis. »Ich bin keine Schriftstellerin, ich bin Ghostwriter für meine Kühe«, sagt sie. Youngs ebenso warmherziges wie charmantes Plädoyer für einen Umgang mit den Tieren auf Augenhöhe verändert unseren Blick und lässt uns staunen. »Niemand, der dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird Kühe so sehen wie zuvor.« The Guardian
