Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life

Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hang on for the ride: with characteristic poetry and pluck, Barbara Kingsolver and her family sweep readers along on their journey away from the industrial-food pipeline to a rural life in which they vow to buy only food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Their good-humored search yields surprising discoveries about turkey sex life and overly zealous zucchini plants, en route to a food culture that's better for the neighborhood and also better on the table.

Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life, and diversified farms at the center of the American diet.

Synopsis:

In her first full-length nonfiction narrative, bestselling author Kingsolver reveals an old truth: you are what you eat. Unabridged. 9 CDs.

Barbara Kingsolver and her family take a year to only eat what they produce or what is locally produced. The book is good to read and the CD is great to listen to. Barbara, her daughter and husband read their parts to the story making it very personal. Not only do you hear their story but lots of information about food production. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book on CD, as with all Barbara Kingsolver books it is a gift to read.
