Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver returns with her first
nonfiction narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred
new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.
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.
